    Flight sims are first person and involve shooting! Pokemon Snap is also an FPS.

    I think the OP had the right idea when he allowed people to list any game and let the overall number of votes decide if people agree.

    No one lives forever 2
    No one lives forever 1
    Dark forces 2
    Dishonored
    Natural Selection 2
    Half Life 2
    Half Life 1
    Duke Nukem 3D
    Mirror's Edge
    Dungeon Keeper 2 (why? what?! it IS first person and you shoot stuff... sometimes)

    In case DK2 is being declined for some dogdy reason I will place Battlefield: Bad Company 2 as a surrogate.

    In order to reach 10 I will have to include a lot of dubiously-FPS games.

    Thief: The Metal Age
    Vampire: Bloodlines
    Thief: Deadly Shadows
    Thief: The Dark Project
    Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
    Fallout: New Vegas
    Fallout 3
    Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
    Call of Duty 2
    Call of Duty 4


    In case any of these are rejected, the list would continue Portal, Deus Ex, Enclave, Borderlands, Deus Ex 2, Arx Fatalis. I have omitted games that are first person and also involve things being shot but I refuse to accept as even possibly FPS games: Might and Magic 6-8, Morrowind, Legend of Grimrock, and so on. Also Deus Ex 3, because I rarely shoot in first person view.

    Sorry mate, but Risen and Gothic are most certainly not FP. Gothic 2 did have a FP camera if I remember correctly, but that was only to navigate out of dense brushes. Risen didn't even have that option.
    Great games though!

    Oh yeah, I always get mixed up with melee combat games, it's hard to remember their perspective. Once I had to load up Mount & Blade during a forum discussion to work out what perspective they are.

    Mount & Blade can be played in first person.

    Yes, that's true. I have never used first person in it though.

    Not even when couching your lance and charging the enemy? Is the only time I use it regularly. Is useful for that... much easier to aim that way.

    How would Mechwarrior not be a FPS?

    You're in first person view, and you shoot things. It's closer to the orthodox definition FPS than Portal or Mirror's Edge.

    We're deep in splitting hairs territory here, but I would argue that Portal and Mirror's Edge are closer to the orthodox definition and that MW2 is more of a sim.

    That said, the only MW game I've played is MW3 so it's entirely possible that MW2 is completely different.

    I don't think the definition really matters too much. It's a community list, so me considering Portal a good FPS for example is one vote for Portal being a good FPS. If someone doesn't agree with that, then their list will reflect that and in the end the final tally will be indicative of the RPS' overall view. I don't think we have to agree on a definition any more than we have to agree whether a game is good or not.
