Why are modern FPS games so far behind Super Mario Bros

in jumping?
Seriously. Hold the button, jump higher. Analogous, too, not just stuffing two jump heights into the game.

It'd be nice to see FPS actually make some progress in vertical momentum control.

I agree. I feel like in BF4 I should be able to jump atleast 10ft in the air if I hold the spacebar longer.

You wouldn't think it'd be a hard concept to grasp, but apparently variable jump height is rocket science around here.

Why the hell are you jumping around in a war FPS? Jump strafing hasn't been a valid military tactic since Vietnam

I understand what your saying. I wouldn't be against it, but I also don't really think it would be that beneficial to FPS. I can't think of any instances where being able to control my jump height would have really helped me in any significant way. Overall, it just seems a little unnecessary, and I don't think many people would utilize it.

Well, I guess that'd be one way to do it, but it kinda sounds like overkill to me.
