both

Why limit yourself to one?

The question is preference. I enjoy playing Counter Strike (FPS), Diablo (RPG) and Oblivion (FPS and RPG) equally, though I would rate Diablo 2 the best game ever (closely followed by Final Fantasy 7 (RPG)).

I think that to be a great game, it needs to be an RPG. Most FPSs don't focus on story, but focus on multiplayer / mechanics / AI / Graphics, while RPGs focus on Story / Graphics / Immersion.

One of my favorite games is Planetside which is a consistent MMOFPS. It contains some RPG elements, but is mostly a FPS. I also really liked BioShock, which surprised me by jumping ship, and focusing alot on Immersion and Story.

It really depends in my mood. . I would say both.

Well, I am an FPS fan myself.  I just don't seem to be able to get into the storylines of RPGs.  I guess you can say that I prefer the instant gratification you get from playing an FPS (You kill a guy you score a point etc. ).  I have a few favourite games I alternate through right now: UT3, CS:S (you gotta love the classics , jk), CoD 4 and TF2.
