you've fallen into the common trap. many of the famous franchises were published
by Nintendo, but not created by them. for example, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Donkey Kong Country/64, Star Fox.
even when referencing the GC's flagship games, neither Metroid nor Star Fox were done by Nintendo themselves.
Nintendo gets a lot more credit than it deserves for many of the great games it publishes.
