>>323414658 The fire mechanic in far cry 2 was pretty fun. Often setting a fire would be more useful than using guns. If there was a way to put the fires out it wouldve been great. Funnily enough, a bushfire near me just burnt down an entire town and killed a few people, and its still spreading
>>323414658 Yo I remember this firefighting game I played at Chuck-E-Cheese when I was a kid, it was like a lightgun shooter but you got hoses instead. I forgot the name of it, but damn it was fun as fuck.
>>323416734 I like the idea of using specific tools for certain tasks, as it mirrors the real thing. I'm kind of set on the notion of a first-person game, though. I feel like a big part of the appeal would be immersing the player in the chaos of a fire from the firefighter's perspective.
My ideal game would follow Rainbow Six Siege's model:
>FPS >teamwork-oriented (at least in theory) >map centered around a family house for smaller teams >larger teams could take on warehouse/skyscraper fires >rescuing victims and minimizing damage by putting the fire out as quickly as possible would be priority
You could also have different "hero" characters with their own personalities and tool sets, a la Siege. That way, no one person can do everything, and he'd have to rely on his team. Possible classes:
You could also have an AI director like in Left 4 Dead that causes certain events to happen as the match progresses. For example, it would control where/when the fire spreads and how fast, how many victims are in the house, etc. It could cause a collapse (which would require the firefighters to rescue their teammate). It could also determine the cause of the fire, which would dictate how it should be fought, and which doors are locked, blocked by debris, etc.
>>323417657 >>323418102 I had another idea. You could do it like the old Rainbow Six games, Doorkickers, etc. Make it like a tactics simulator, where you play the role of the chief and direct your firefighters around the house, with the option to take control of any one of them at will. Planning and resource management would be key.
