The first video game about Minigames was released on December 12, 1987.

Sega, Nintendo and Ubisoft has published most of these games

Often these exist in the form of a puzzle, but other formats aren't that difficult to come up with.

These usually exist to make something outwardly simple more involved and entertaining, such as picking a lock becomes a minigame of something rather than simple random chance of success or artificial delay or other automatic attempt.

Some cases may be more literal minigames, like pipemania when rerouting flow of something. Also including more literal games found in-game, such as lunar lander game on a PDA-like device, card or dice games with certain characters, and so forth.
