While the FPS genre has remained a mainstay of the medium for the longest of times, it's only in recent times that the genre's popularity has experienced a resurgence of sorts. Once a genre brimming with multiplayer-centric military shooters, the first-person-shooter genre now encompasses a wide range of experiences - from horror games to arena shooters to RPGs and many more.
Leading the charge for bringing about this FPS revolution can be credited to the many indie and AA studios that have shot to fame in recent years - largely thanks to streamlined development tools and the rise in popularity of digital publishing platforms like Steam. The future is looking as bright as ever for fans of the FPS genre with games including but not limited to Death in the Water 2 looming right over the horizon.
