    Because the Greek pov is the one that survives for our cultural tradition, it's definitely a corruption of reality and I wish someone would make a contrarian work just for the sake of it, the Civ 6 devs out of anyone should have enough Reddit instincts for this

    The entire historical tradition of the west has been that of plucky yet strong men standing up against the might of the barbarous and despotic eastern hordes.

      Becuase "white" people write their own media with their own trends, tropes and cliches. That's like being surprised African media has African villains and protags or Japanese media has Japanese villains

        and people often write based on their own experiences. Hirohiko Araki travelled around the world and based Stardust Crusaders off his time in Egypt. It's why a lot of the villain of the week were probably Egyptian, he even got the "very friendly but openly bargaining/grifty" right because he saw and did that shit himself.

    Orientalism. The Yellow peril was first about Aryans and were extended to other Easterners when Europeans went further east.

      By the time of the Sassanids, the Achaemenids were nigh-mythical.
