Default What was the first FPS ever?

From what I've heard, it's Arctic Fox from 1986.

Are there any FPSes that came before that?

actually, the first one was called catacomb abyss from idsoftware, it was before wolfsenstien3d. the game wasn't popular at all, but it was indeed the first according to idsoftware.

edit: i don't think catacymb abyss was from idsoftware... not sure what it was from though.

Is Arctic Fox considered to be an FPS?

here's a link on catacomb abyss...

http://www.mobygames.com/game/sheet/gameId,410/

it doesn't say much, but i know in the gold pack of return to castle wolfenstien (it comes with wolf3d and enemy territory), it has a lot of info on the "first" fps's and it says that catacomb abyss was the first to their knowledge.

edit: i guess they were wrong? *shrugs* it claims november of 1991 on that website, though i'm not sure how accurate it is.

On a floppy, I have a game called Curse of the Catacombs that looks almost exactly the same as "Catacomb Abyss", except for the title screen. Fun game

Oh, and this is my first post...hello everyone

Spasim (1974) apparently is the first game in the FPS genre.

According to this source : http://www.wordiq.com/definition/First-person_shooter
Interesting read too : http://www.wordiq.com/definition/Game_engine

I remember playing Catacomb 3D and Wolfenstein 3D during mid to late 1992's on a 486.

I suppose FPS means the game would have to have a first person view, which has been present since the non 3D adventure games in the early 80s, but what kind of 'shooting' would it have to have? Before Wolf 3D was Ultima Underworld, a true 3D game which had bows, slings and other range weapons. The genre just blurs a bit before that time because it wasn't really defined.
