Category: First-Person Shooters

First-person shooter (FPS) is a video game genre centered on gun and projectile weapon-based combat through a first-person perspective; that is, the player experiences the action through the eyes of the protagonist. The first-person shooter shares common traits with other shooter games, which in turn fall under the heading action game. From the genre’s inception, advanced 3D or pseudo-3D graphics have challenged hardware development, and multiplayer gaming has been integral.
