    "Team Fortress is a fun game that I became a big fan of. The characters, gameplay, and overall look & feel bring me satisfaction like I haven't had since the Quake series. You can find games like this on Steam as they offer some for free from time to time. This one has been free to play for some time and it's one of the ones that I first played on steam. "

WHAT'S THE MEANING?

First-person shooter (FPS) is a video game genre which is focused on weapon-based combat, particularly guns. As the name implies, the genre is played through a first-person perspective. This lets players experience in-game events and scenes through the eyes of the main character itself.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the first-ever recorder first-person shooter game is Maze War way back in 1973? The history of the first person shooter genre goes way back. Despite Maze War's simple setting and gameplay, the genre took a more action-packed turn with the release of Wolfenstein 3D in 1992. Wolfenstein 3D was a violent FPS game and set the foundations for games in the same setting. It was then followed by Doom, which was released in 1993. Doom became famous during its era, to the point of the genre being called "Doom clone" for a short period of time.

This genre used to be exclusive to PCs back when it was initially introduced. But due to the rise of advancing technology, first-person shooters are now widely available for consoles. Even more surprising is the fact that some games of this genre are now available for Android devices and even iPhones. Modern FPS games now vary, with some taking place in modern times and some in a sci-fi era. Some even have a mix of medieval and modern cultures. The internet has also made multiplayer first-person shooter games a possibility, which allows players to either cooperate or compete with fellow fans of the genre.
