The first video game about Small spacecraft was released in 1979.

LucasArts, Sega and InterAction studios has published most of these games

Often these have atmospheric flight capabilities, but not always. Some may have have warp capabilities, but - again - not always. Usually with minimal storage capacity and impressive armament.
