The first video game about Ruined world was released in 1988.

Interplay, Bethesda Softworks and Deep Silver has published most of these games

Note that not all post-apocalyptic fiction is set in a time when the devastation of the former apocalypse is readily visible. Nor does a ruined world require that it reached that stage through some apocalyptic event.

Commonly involves a civilization struggling to survive in the now hostile environment.
