It was less about strategy and more about numbers. Sparta was not that big and due to the rigorous training they went through they were very specialized but unable to hold up to the onslaught of actual armies.

Still, a lot of Japanese games (and anime) could use more masculinity.


fist of the north star, dragon ball z, and toriko. im sure there are more out there. hell i would even call sports anime masculinity.

In short, western games try for realism and eastern games try more for stylistic effect.


But realism leads to stagnation and death. Stylism leads to aesthetics. Without aesthetics, humanity would have outlived its purpose and require extinction. Plus, masculinity is incredibly toxic like centipede venom.
