Many computer games today are computer versions of games that can be played using physical objects. Card games or Dice Games for example. Chess. Checkers. Also Board Games. There are also a large class of games which model physical sports. Baseball, Football, Tennis, Billiards, etc.
What games, if any, were first invented as computer games and then, somebody thought, hey this can be played without a computer!
Card games that didn't exist before but were created as computer games - do count. Also any board games that first began as computer-only.
But novelties don't count - for example someone dressing up as a gorilla and throwing barrels at a Mario.
