The first video game about Chapter replay was released in 1998.

Blizzard Entertainment, Playdead and Robot Entertainment has published most of these games

Note that this is not for the selection of what to play and complete next, but rather choosing a level within a linear story for replay. In effect, this is not for non-linear progression of the story.

This is not for cases where the selection is accomplished by using a cheat code or similar.
