FPS stands for first person shooter and is arguably one of the largest and most profitable video game genre of all times. This genre of games become popular in the early nineties with titles such as Wolfenstein 3D and Doom. In these games characters see a virtual world through their screens, as if actually looking at it through the eyes of the character they control. Hence the name "first person", as the character's perspective becomes the player's perspective. Since then the genre has grown and changed a lot, moving from frantic action and brutal headshots towards more tactical and skill-based options. As well as expanding the multiplayer systems that games like Quake or Quake Arena have introduced. Game distribution networks like Steam allow players from all over the world access to the same game and by extension to play it against people far away from one another.
Current FPS favourites like Overwatch are in high demand, although games like Halo, Counter-Strike or Call of Duty still enjoy a large devoted following among gamers.
