Video game physics

The acceleration due to gravity in the Mario games is ridiculously high.

This study is fundamentally flawed: Mario is not five feet tall. The diving pool by Lake Hylia in Ocarina of Time has meter marks on the wall, from which we know that Link is 4'11". By comparing the heights of Mario and Link in Smash Brothers, it is clear that Mario's height is closer to 4'2".
