Now you're understanding the basics of it.
But that's how it is. If you don't give it a genre, then what the hell is it?
Something like Gears of War sniper, about the only FPS I can think of, doesn't really fit since it's mainly TPS. But still, there is a fraction of FPS, if you ever use the sniper zooming.
