1) The short way of saying First Person Shooter, a type of game where you see everything through the character's eyes.

2) The short way of saying Frames Per Second, a way in measuring how fast animation frames go. The higher the FPS, the more smoothly a game will run. Lag decreases FPS.
1) Man I love playing FPS games!
2) Damn, this lag really kills my FPS!

Abbreviation for First Person Shooter", a video game in which the player sees from the perpective of the main game character, or in the "first person". These games usually involve some type of weapon, usually a gun, of which the end of the barrel can usually be seen at the bottom of the screen, as if the player is looking down the gun.
Some examples of F.P.S.'s include Battlefield 1942, Half-Life, Doom (perhaps being the most famous, and arguably the first real F.P.S), Red Faction, and the Medal of Honor series.

FPS has three meanings.
1. FPS: A First Person Shooter is a type of game where you play as if your eyes are the character's, and the game involves shooting down opponents and in general wreaking havoc and inflicting massive damage to giant enemy crabs.
2. FPS: Frames Per Second helps when it comes to animations on computers. Setting an animation to 1 frame per second would cause the image to change every second, while 24 would show good, smooth animation. It is primarily used in Flash Animations and animated .GIFs, so that coo.
3. FPS: Feet Per Second is often times how a bullet or similarly shot projectiles are measured.
1. So I came over to my friend's house and said "hay, wanna play halo 3 beta?" and he's all liek "ya, FPS's are teh shiznit"
2. My friend laughed loudly at my .GIF when he saw how unsmoothly it animated. "What did you set the FPS to on this one!? HAHAHA!"
3. It took about .001 for the bullet to meet the man's head. Holy crap that hurt.

Frames Per Second. The general benchmark for computer performance in a video game. Refers to the number of times the image on a computer monitor gets refreshed per second. 60 fps is generally the benchmark for acceptable performance; that provides a buffer for when the action in a game gets heavier.
My old crapper of a computer only gets 20 fps in Quake 3.
