  1. Did it not use to mean first person shooter when it is FPS and frames per second when it is fps? It was and I believe it still is. In all of the games I play when it shows my frame rate it is fps not FPS. If you have a game where it state you fps in a game as FPS please screen shot it and post it below. If your game does not have a shortcut key, remember you can use fn+prtsc. Opinions are welcomed just as much as screenshots.

    There is two meaning depending on frame(no pun) of reference. Capitalization only mean abbreviation of the first letter of each word in a term, but it is not always followed as a rule.
    1. First Person Shooter
    2. Frames Per Second

    Ah okay, well its just really confusing. Every time I see FPS it is talking about first person shooters, and fps always meant frames. Now people just type what ever they want to type.

    I see what you're saying tsub but I think you've got a serious uphill battle trying to educate people to type this correctly. It's similar to the battle we have with Mac and MAC.

    Good luck with that. People won't even type common English words correctly much less follow capitalization rules.

    That's a very good point. It just gets really irritating sometimes.
