The first video game about Task queuing was released in 2000.
Something like: "Move through there, repair that, build that there, and finish up by patrolling here." And before the character has time to finish the first thing, the player is already commanding other characters, confident that the unit has its life laid out for it for the foreseeable future and won't stand about doing nothing.
