Could A Twilight Video Game Not ‘Suck’?
Is there a game story-telling possibility or would it be devoured and drained by the moneymakers?

UPDATE 29/07/09: Well there you go…a Twilight game IS being produced….at least on PC. Brain-Junk Studios is apparently releasing a game that will be “an interactive experience that will allow players to immerse themselves into a deeper understanding of the Twilight Saga…(It) will capture you with it’s great storytelling…” So story is indeed a focus, as it needs to be. But will it suck? The studio’s name (Brain-Junk) doesn’t fill me with confidence…
Twilight the film and Twilight the book series by Stephenie Meyer, featuring a ‘girl meets boy’ love story with a vampire twist, have certainly captured the imaginations of people around the world. The target audience may have been teen girls, but much like the Harry Potter series before it, which was also originally considered for younger audiences, the story has spread beyond its demographic to include people of both genders and of a variety of ages.
With obvious high interest and huge commercial success both as books and a movie (soon to be series of movies for sure), there is the possibility of Bella and her vampire beau Edward making it into the next entertainment medium: the video game.
