Agreed, Kazunori Yamauchi is a legend and pioneer designer. Taking development to such an obsessive measure proved to be a great investment for the future of that genre.

He never let anyone deter his vision and had he had been a weaker man, GT and the sim racing genre would never be where it is today. Some fold to outside pressers, from time constraints, budgeting, delays etc

He very much showed that his vision and the cost and time it took to make it a reality was worth it. He made a title were at the time, no other title could even be referenced to what it even was.

Instead of folding and going with the stream, he moved up current and showed what he was envisioning could be a reality.

Easily one of my top 5 favorite and most respected developers of all time.

Its pretty easy to have a concept that builds off of other genres and titles, whats hard is making a genre defining game with no reference point, huge budget and no guarantee of success.
