The first video game about NPC friendly fire was released on June 22, 1996.

Tripwire Interactive, Harebrained Schemes and Devolver Digital has published most of these games

This is to contrast cases where NPCs are immune to "friendly" grenades exploding at their feet or wild suppression fire from their allies not doing anything when it accidentally hits them.
