Most shooter games have lives and continues/extends, which is a clear indication of the genre’s origins on coin-operated arcade machines. Which is also why 1CC is said to either mean “1 Credit Clear” or “1 Coin Clear”.

Regardless, there are some games that instead of that tradition, give the player a health bar, that depleats with hits received and in some cases can be regained through certain means (health pick-ups, killing enemies, etc.)
