The first video game about Dwarves was released in 1975.

SSI, Electronic Arts and Gremlin Graphics has published most of these games

Generally anything inspired by Tolkien's Dwarves, but more traditional sources may apply. However, since traditional sources tend to vary from region to region and are often vague on the appearance of the creatures, Tolkien's creations should be given priority.

This is actually only limited to their appearance. Cultural and behaviour-based limitations shouldn't be considered as much.
