So, when did the term "RPG," or "Role Playing Game" get stolen from the family of paper and pencil games that started with Dungeons and Dragons, to be used on video games featuring characters?

As a long time player of D&D and its kin, I'm always a bit startled at how many people use the term exclusively in relationship to video games.
