Maybe my brain isn't working, or my eyes, or I'm just dumb...all three are quite viable options but it sounds like you're trying to argue that ME is a fps? When it clearly is not. Gameplay is not present through Shepard's "eyes" like in Call of Duty or Halo. It is a third person view, with the camera being placed behind Shepard's shoulders. CoD has a third person game mode, but that doesn't mean its a third person shooter.
