    What would you call the types of games like Bioshock, Singularity, etc where it's first person shooter, but there's extra like powers and stuff, and it's not really military-styled? Is there a special category for them, or are they all under FPS's?

    They're all under FPS. A first person shooter doesn't necessarily mean that it's military-based.

    First person shooter just means that the point of view is from the guy's eyes. 3rd person shooter is a camera view from behind the person (like in GTA).

    FPS is a First Person Shooter,which means that your playing as the person as he would see it.

    He wants a First Person Game where it's not a shooter like Crysis or something like Bioshock.

    Try out Portal.It's a FPS but it's a puzzle like game .

    Guys, he's not even asking for a game. He just thought that FPS only applied to military based games and he was wondering if there was another category for games like Bioshock, Singularity etc.
