In which year did it came out, though? Because the game arrived on the Internet in 2002 IIRC.
The first known description about "The Game" in its current form WAS in 2002, you're right.
Before that, in 1987, Daniel Wegner performed studies on thought repression and ironic process theory, showing that if you try not to think about something, it's all you can think about.
Before that, circa 1976, the Cambridge University Science Fiction Society made a game where if you think about Finchley Central, you lose.
Before that, that same year, John Conway made a game called "Endgame" where the first person to make a move loses.
Before that, in 1947, Paul Goodman described a game where you must not think of a pink elephant.
Before that, in 1863, Fyodor Dostoyevsky said in one of his works, "Try to pose for yourself this task: not to think of a polar bear and you will see that the cursed thing will come to mind every minute."
Before that, circa 1840, Leo Tolstoy describes a game he used to play with his brother where they must "stand in a corner and not think of the white bear... but could not possibly manage, not to think of the white bear."

Game, set, MATCH.
