First-person strategy is a kind of cross-genre or hybrid video game which combines elements of both real-time strategy (RTS) and first-person shooter (FPS) genres together in some way. Games of this type can combine any ratio of the two genres, including primarily Top-down perspective real-time strategy games which include the ability to take control of individual units from a first-person perspective, and also first-person shooters that include only some basic real-time strategy elements.

Multiplayer variations of these types of games often allow for both RTS and FPS modes to be played simultaneously. One player usually taking on the role of the "commander" who issues commands from a traditional RTS interface to other players that take on the role of the individual units from an FPS perspective.
