Give a short description of it and give your reason attributing it as the first in a particular game genre.
Pay particular attention to the way you define the genre in question: is it defined functionally through its interaction style, or with references to a specific theme or iconography, through its unique difference from other genre, or simply with reference to marketing and/or fan discourse (the text on the back of the box, for example or references at websites)?
