Super Mario harder than complex math?

So I saw this article on Facebook, but I’m not sure how much I agree with it:

Super Mario

I don’t doubt that there are a lot of things that have to happen in your brain to make this happen – hand-eye coordination, anticipation of upcoming events, strategy, etc – but I’m not sure it’s fair to say that this is as “difficult” has solving a complex math problem.  I’ve also never heard of the source of the article, which makes me suspicious.

If it’s true, though, yay sixth grade me!
