Jamin brought up a really interesting point in this episode of Game/Show. Humans aren't very good jumpers but that doesn't stop us from building games with really cool jump mechanics. Jamin covers some history of game jumping and tries to answer the question if Mario's crazy jump ability effected any video games that came afterward? Spoiler alert, apparently it did.

This was a pretty good episode. I love when video game physics gets broken down :)
