The first video game about Containers was released in 1982.

2K Games, Sega and Beamdog has published most of these games

Overlaps with destructible containers somewhat if these can be destroyed as well, but if both kind are present, these usually require a key to open and are otherwise indestructible.

This also includes containers that can be opened and items taken out of in games where it's impossible to put away items (infinite inventory space) as long as they behave like containers.
