A game in which the player-character has a name, a background, and a history in the game world, and for whom the game has some particular physical skills and training in the use of objects (overwhelmingly weapons) programmed in for the player to command, but who is presented as merely a pair of arms holding and aiming objects on the lower part of the screen.

Compare with second-person game and third-person game.
