Modern? The father of ALL video games. Let`s try to compare Mr.Miyamoto with for example cliff... No, forget it, we shouldn`t. I`d kill a teenager.
What about Naughty Dog. Sure the producer is not legendary but their games are amazing imo.

Especially when we are talking about modern gaming.

is Shigeru Miyamoto really the king now? Is he making the best games today? idk..

Inevitable disagree storm incoming. I know. I won't resist.

miyamoto isnt the father of modern video games and ill explain.

video games were available before miyamoto was around working at nintendo. to hear such rubbish discredits the real ones that ushered gaming as we know it into a thriving billion dollar industry .

nintendo was making 2d side scrollers which was around on atari before it. nes had a better console than the atari systems that were released before so they had a natural progression of 2d games.

3d games and mature or adult oriented games are mostly what rules in the gaming industry now which didnt become common place til playstation.

playstation was suppose to be a nintendo and sony console but nintendo didnt want too much of a powerful console.they didnt care for 3d games with more mature content for adults and they abandoned the sony project which ken kuturagi have said on numerous occasions. the renaissance of video games began when playstation entered the gaming industry.

look at nintendo in todays world and look at what they continue to push the most even on wii u. they are pushing 2d side scrolling mario wii u which is akin to mario 3 on nes but in hd.

miyamoto made mario into what it is today which looks and plays like mario 30years ago. he consulted on other nintendo projects but didnt do a lot.he made donkey kong from early 80s on arcade but rare did the best with that ip. he did f zero, starfox ,the legend of zelda, pikmin but i wouldn't consider any of those games as ground breaking enough because they deviated from the formula that was there already. the best zelda titles weren't made by him either. he can be credited for consulting on other nintendo projects

Naughty dog wouldn't have an industry to be in without the industry revival ushered in by Nintendo. Which was only possible because of Miyamoto.

In modern gaming, his influence is still heavily felt. Most industry bigwigs atribute their sucess or entry to mario and nes era nintendo. The games he works on are all highly polished and well recieved games comercially and critically.

I respect the guy and what he has done but to say he is the father of modern gaming..

Far from it.
