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.

Get out.

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.

No, because Gr4n Turi$m0 is a better game.

Fourza.

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.

#24 Posted by James_ex_machina (899 posts) -

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.

Somewhere a Microsoft marketing exec is flipping over his desk in anger.

#26 Posted by NickLott (793 posts) -

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'.

This thread is too much lol.

#32 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

i see what you did there. no, it wouldn't be good.

#33 Posted by BiohazardBlaze (41 posts) -

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

See what I did there?

#42 Posted by zudthespud (3284 posts) -

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.

#43 Edited by slowbird (1756 posts) -

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.

#44 Posted by QKT (251 posts) -

slightly too third society three-esque methinks

#45 Posted by Kaddion (142 posts) -

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

#46 Posted by foggel (2764 posts) -

Oh man I was laughing because I thought you were joking.

Now it's even funnier.

#47 Posted by NTM (7540 posts) -

Yes, yes... everyone is correct when they say no.

4za = THE WORST!
