The first video game about Random locations was released in 1990.

505 Games, Telltale Games and Acid Wizard Studio has published most of these games

Not to be confused with randomly selected maps/levels (or other places) or randomly generated maps/levels (or other places).
Most notable effect this has is that the player can't metagame the next step of a mission by going to or towards the location of the next objective before it is given, or if no objective indicator is given, they must actually search for it each time instead of using knowledge from previous attempts.
