The first video game about Hell was released in 1982.

id Software, Electronic Arts and Activision has published most of these games

Since this includes places like hell, and some versions of hell are different in how they function, Hell should not imply it is a "land of the dead". For example, Doom's Hell is mostly just another dimension/reality much like the Hell in Event Horizon (movie) is also another (non-physical) dimension/reality.

Some of these are also equivalent of the underworld (land of the dead), the place where those who have died go instead of being the place where only the sinners go to be tormented for all eternity or whatever each particular one makes it to be.
