The first video game about Shields was released in 1985.

Paradox Interactive, Square and Bethesda Softworks has published most of these games

If this is a passive form of protection (player doesn't have to do anything for it protect them) or doesn't restrict the use of the off-arm then this shouldn't be used without adding a note about it.
