Much of Nintendo's success and domination of the video game market was due to his guidance.

Yamauchi served as the executive producer for pretty much every Nintendo game from 1974-2002, but, considering the number of games and his non-gaming background, I doubt he had a direct influence on any of the games on which he is credited.
