The first video game about In-game title was released in 1983.

U.S. Gold, Ocean and Mastertronic has published most of these games

Screenshots published as part of advertizing a game tend to include the game title added to it afterwards, thus it's not actually something in-game. These should not be included in this tag (that is, do your research properly).

This was common in older platforms where updating the whole screen was deemed a resource hog and thus gameplay area covered only small part of the screen. When the covered part couldn't have something relevant to gameplay, it was usually covered with the game title (though in some rare instances this could've been used for some artwork instead).
