The use of intermediary objects becomes somewhat confusing with foci and inscribed magic symbols, but there's a clear difference in that the object itself does not have any magical properties the user invokes but rather uses the object to help do what they can do otherwise without aid. In case of inscribed runes, the act becomes closer to enchanting objects but can be occasionally considered a variation of drawing those symbols in air.
Object enchantment and summoning should not be considered part of this tag, even if magic is used by the player to accomplish them.
The first Sorcery video game was released in 1981.
