If wonder woman was to actually get her very own video game, do you think it would be any good?  I have heard a lot of people wanting one but i dont think it would work.  I dont see how they could fit her storyline into it and make it different from any other game.  What do you guys think?  (sorry if i did something wrong, this is my first posting of a new topic)

If they made it as bloody and went all out like God of War then yes, I could see it working. Add in some guest appearances, side quests, etc, and why not?

Well, I guess they could use the current comic setting. Who wouldn't love to fight minotaurs on rooftops in NY? Since she and her fellow Amazons are being followed, it makes sense not to give her flight. Because flight would take out all the sense of adventure and mystery from the game. How I would love to chase Cheetah down the sewers hehehe. 
And they should give access to all/most of her weapons. I hated how in MK vs DC they didn't even let us use her tiara or bracelets. AND downplayed her combat skills and/or strength. 
The way she fought was not very Amazonian - more akin to a flexible ballerina.

I agree, make it God of War ish (big GOW fan here lol), make her character abilities fun and cool to use, and then you could have one hell of a game...Also maybe throw in like a 300 esque scene where she has to lead or fight with a bunch of other amazons against some monsters...that'd be awesome.

I can't imagine a game of Wonder Woman.

I think it could really work 
there'd be great fight mechanics using her superstrength 
they could do a lot of great animations (GoW style) utilizing her lasso to take down enemies 
she could have a batarang from B:AA like mechinic with her tiara 
and they could make her able to deflect attacks and projectiles to certain areas or enemies 
and all of those mechanics would be great for puzzle solving 
and Themyscara and the mythic world she runs in would be an amazing backdrop with tons of great enemies 
actually....her current arc would be a cool game once it's run its course 
they could have us playing as alternate world Diana (jacket wearing diana) which would explain your need to learn all her moves and powers and then have you end up playing the "mainstream" continuity Diana as the story goes on

Agree, especially with that, now that I think of it. New York streets always make good settings. Mythological creatures littering those dark alleys would be great. 
Think God Of War, Heavenly Sword and Arkham City all rolled into one.

I think it would work if a developer like Bioware made it. They could make it like Dragon's Age Origins. Maybe make more of a Justice League game. Each character would have their own story at the beginning and come together to form the Justice League. Wonder Woman's  could start out with her leaving the island to return Steve Trevor. She could gain skills as you level and give you choices of having love affairs with Steve Trevor or Batman, and fighting bad guys along the way. Each character you play would have different experiences.

Personally I think a middle ground between Heavenly Sword and God of War would be more effective. God of war would be too over the top for Diana's character in terms of excessive brutlality but the plot would work. Heavenly sword has a maneuverability and gameplay that would work wonderfully, but lacks the epic scale that GOW has.
