Why I closed it
In this question, we decided not to make exceptions for finite subsets of the entire gaming universe for identification questions.
In the off topic ruling I used, it explicitly says:
Questions asking for help identifying a game, based on a description, feature list, or any other criteria are off-topic
You are asking a question to identify a game based on a list of criteria. Your question clearly fits into this description, and therefore it is off topic under current rules. The difference between "did any game ever do X" and "what was the first game to do X" is a semantic one at best; the ability to answer the question is the same, and off-topic rules should apply equally to both.
If you want to change this, you need to provide a strong case for why the specific type of question you have in mind provides value despite the fact that we have already determined that the broader class of questions this fits into does not provide value.
Why it's a bad question for Arqade
It's not a practical question based on an in-game problem. It's trivia. It's not actually useful to anyone except to scratch a curious itch. Our site's focus is primarily to solve practical gaming problems. While we do allow some trivia, it's not meant to be a focus of this site, and the fact that it's simultaneously trivia and clearly off-topic makes it not a fit for us.
The old text for this close reason was:
Questions asking for help identifying a game, whether based on a description, or feature list, or any other set of criteria (i.e. "What was the first game to…") are off-topic; this blog post might help. We allow an exception for identifying games based on an actual piece of the game, such as screenshots or audio clips.
We had to shorten it for technical reasons, where we removed this specific example from the text. Removal of the example, however, does not remove the concept that it is off topic.
