Gears of War isn't an FPS though. Cut the semantics, you were wrong period. Just because MGS has a first person view does not make it an FPS. On my second playthrough of Mass Effect my character specialized in sniping. It spent a good deal of the game in a first person view via Sniper scope. That doesn't make Mass Effect a FPS, it is still an RPG. The line you quoted me on was a sarcastic quip meant to be ridiculous because its untrue. Uncharted is not an FPS, neither is Gears of War. That was the whole point of the statement.
I don't think I called Gears a FPS in this thread, but IMO the game appeals to FPS fans for sure. It the game has a lot in common with a FPS apart from viewpoint, Uncharted differs far more.
Would you agree Warhawk is a shooter similar to a FPS, appealing to a similar user base with online multiplayer shooting? I agree it's different from the traditional shooters as you can fly up high in the sky and participate in dogfights as well as fight on the ground.
