It doesn't matter if you're a sniper, a camper, or a target; everyone can learn a little something from the Kotaku Genre Guide to First-Person Shooters.

From the relaxing ease of role-playing games to the frantic, fast-paced action of the first-person shooter. The second in our ongoing series of genre guides takes a look at the first-person shooter, one of the most competitive video game genres around. Some might consider it a sub-genre of the action genre, true FPS fans know that these types of games are in a class by themselves.

Don't be alarmed if your favorite game doesn't show up. We're giving an overview of the genre, and while we'd love to include every FPS ever made, we'd need a much larger image than we've already got here.
