He made Earthbound, Balloon Fighter, helped with many Kirbys and Smash Bros, and basically made Pokemon Stadium and Pokemon Gold/Silver work.

He personally compressed Gold and Silver enough to include Kanto, worked on Smash with Sakurai, and was the guy who fixed basically all Earthbound's programming. The man was a technical genius

"After graduating from university, Iwata joined HAL Laboratory in a full-time capacity.[3] He became the company's coordinator of software production in 1983. Some of the video games he helped create while he worked there were Balloon Fight, EarthBound, and the Kirby games.[4][5] Iwata was eventually promoted to president of HAL in 1993.[3] Nevertheless, both he and HAL sometimes aided in the creation of Nintendo video games."

Co-creator of smash bros I believe
The one way to deal with PC gamers is to treat them how developers treat them. Which is ignoring them completely and giving them scraps every now and then.

He was with HAL labs prior to becoming president. That being said he would have done work on Kirby and Smash Bros.

IIRC, he basically reprogrammed Earthbound from scratch by himself because the programming team did a bad job/lost their direction. I think the quote went something like, "you can try debugging for two years, or you can let me recreate it half a year, your call," or something similar to that effect. I think he also created a few NES games by himself, along with compressing gold/siver by himself in order to fit the kanto region on the cart. He's a freaking crazy programmer

I found this list but I know for sure it's incomplete (because it doesn't include Balloon Fight):
