The first video game about Lethal objects was released in 1981.

Nintendo, Atari and Frozenbyte has published most of these games

This does not mean that merely touching the objects is lethal, but that they can, under certain circumstances, cause injury. Such as a boulder sitting quitely on the ground will not cause damage no matter how much you tromp on it, but have it fall down 5 floors down and hit your head and the situation will be quite different.

Other common objects are barrels and logs.
