A Quake style FPS is the largest game on Facebook..

I'm surprised this game is not even in our database, UberStrike is the largest FPS on Facebook! I tried it and I gotta say its a very old school FPS with small health packs and jump pads and great graphics, and hey guess what, its bloody free! No you don't have to play it via Facebook if you don't want to, you can play it via there site and its also on the Mac App store.

I recommend you all try it, especially if you enjoyed the old days of Quake.

If you enjoyed the old days of Quake, why wouldn't you just play Quake Live? I would. (and do)

ÜberStrike, you say? Could they possibly have come up with a dumber name? Also, what is your metric for the "largest"? Do you mean in reference to file size? How is this thing I've never heard of bigger that FarmVille and Pet Hotel?

@chrismafuchris: Largest FPS on Facebook - Most used FPS on Facebook.

UT2k4 and UT3 still have people playing. Also Quake Live.

I guess if your into social media then this is kind of neat though.

@Hizang The title clearly says "largest game on Facebook", not "largest FPS" or "Most Used FPS". Are you saying that the first person shooter is the only real type of video game?

and by that you mean if you are the type of person that likes "I PLAYED UBERSTRIKE!!!!!!!!" spammed on your wall ;)

My friend has like 10 different websites constantly posting on his wall, I had to mute his posts in the end.

A free browser-based FPS on Facebook of all places seems like a great place to spawn the very worst sort of community, but that's not an inherent problem with the game itself. Does it use your profile name or is it all behind an avatar identity wall?

Any computer that is pushing that game can easily play Quake Live, UT2k4, or Quake 2/3. In turn, they should just play that.

Also, that guy's voice is fucking grating. I want him to fellate a .45 until it busts a nut onto the wall behind him.

This seems waaaaaay too slow to be fun for anyone who enjoyed Quake or UT.

I'm tempted to play this to see how badly the people playing are.

This is why I enjoy it, most people don't seem to know what there doing.
Makes me feel big!

Well, at first I was going to ask why someone wouldn't just play Quake Live.

But then I saw how insanely bad some of those people are.

He never stops for the whole 15 minutes, I can't fucking believe this.

I hate this guy. Ive watched a few videos with him Ive just learned to mute him.

#23 Posted by Vonocourt (2159 posts) -

He said facebook about five times in a row, I'm still trying to figure out if it was all in one sentence or not.

Also, game looks like a game. May give it a shot, but it looks entirely inconsequential.

I didn't last more than 3 minutes into that video, but I laughed the whole time.
