Indeed. Game physics is a well trodden path these days, there are APIs for this sort of thing that do all the work for you. On the Amiga we'd have to start from scratch.
People who play games but don't program don't realise what has to go on behind the scenes to make things happen. It's easy to take things for granted, and think that sprites are actually solid objects, that all you have to do is "add gravity" and the rest takes care of itself. Even on a simple platform game, if all you did was "add gravity", your character would fall through the floor!
