The term has been stretched and misused over the years in MMOS and now it's often used as a player type. A 'DPS' is a class with the primary role of dealing damage, as opposed to tanking or healing.

it means damage per second, in other games i played a player may use quick weapons (daggers) with relatively weak damage, and another could use a slow weapon(large sword) but both would have the same damage per second.

most will use it to refer to a type of playstyle, heal, tank or dps (or damage dealer - dd)
