Would Forza Motorsport 4 be better if it was just called 4za?

I think it would be, in a so bad it's good kind of way. I was kind of sad Final Destination 5 wasn't called 5nal destination, like they had originally planned.

Implying the name of a product impacts the quality of the product that is made.

I'm assuming 4za is already trademarked by the Wu-Tang.

No it would not. Anything using numbers like that in the name is bad.

On a comedic level: Absolutely. Overall: No.

This one. It's pretty much like 4za, in fact, it's phonetically identical. But it seems more self-aware, and less dumb as shit.

NO. it's not a kart racer. Plus I recall a IGN podcast where they talked to the developers and the game is pronounced For(T)za. Not four-za. And 4-Tza is really stupid.

If they were to call it 4za, I would stop buying the series.

The 't' sound comes from the 'z' anyway, so it's spelled exactly the same way. You don't have to change anything.

On topic, I enjoy casually calling it 4ZA simply because of the RZA/GZA comparisons, but there's no reason for any company to actually name a product something like that.

Although I still think it should have been 'Fast & Fourious'.

The terribleness of a name like "4za" "Fourza" and "4orza" would probably prevent me from buying this game.

It's a game that is very sim and professional and sleek. This would ruin it.

Next you'll want, 5kyrim

Another thing I forgot to mention, Gears of war 3 should just have been called G3ars. I think that's just what I will call it.

I'm so glad this is gaining traction. Even though it's not official, some of us will definitely refer to it as 4za. If you think it's stupid, then you're no fun.

It also doesn't actually work because Forza is pronounced Fort-za. Its Italian you see.
