if Peace is unobtainable....

If you spare the Quarians, they have a chance to learn from their mistakes. If you spare the Geth, nobody knows truly what they will do.

The Geth do not eat, do not sleep, do not breathe, do not feel pain, and do not age. Like Javik said, they are more alien to Shepard than even he is.

Geth. It's not to totally blame the Quarians but it's a case of the lesser of two evils.


True, both sides do share accountability for their actions.

But how are the Geth the lesser of two evils? They're are the ones who sides with the Reapers. TWICE! Once voluntarily.


Only a fringe group sided with the Reapers the first time, not the Geth as a whole. And the second time time the Quarians attacked the Geths' central unit, causing the Geth to go into a survival mode.

A bully attacks a kid with a bat, the bully hits the kid over the head. The kid is dazed and confused, fearing for his life. Now a criminal or something hands the kid a gun and the kid starts shooting at the bully, again thinking that the bully is gonna kill him. Who's at fault.


Yes, and the other Geth did absolutely nothing about it. Even after they tried to destroy the whole galaxy.

Using you're analogy; The kid first chose to be a bully, something happens(out of his control) and he decides not to be one anymore. you don't think the people who were bullied would want revenge now that he isn't a bully anymore?

I don't know if anyone's mentioned it, but remember that the Quarians decided to kill other Quarians that had the "audacity" to defend the Geth.


and what did the Geth do when half of them chose to ally with the Reapers? Going to war with the galaxy.

Nothing!

If you're talking about the Heretics, they were not half of the Geth, and when the Heretics did choose to ally with Sovereign the good Geth didn't know that they would have gone to war with everybody else.

And then after that became apparent, they still did nothing.

Were these advanced AI's not smart enough to realize that the Hereatics actions would reflect on the Geth as a whole? That Organics would not be able to differentiate between the 2 sides?

That one random dude in Dragon Age has a quote that I feel is appropriate here:
'Only a fool fights for his farmland while his country burns down around him.' Or something to that effect.
I'm a lot more sympathetic towards the Geth, though. If the Quarians choose this critical moment in time to go to war with the Geth, ignoring the real threat, then they deserve to die.
The Geth however, forced to defend themselves from their creators as well as the Reapers would die a pointless, cruel death for no other reason then simply existing and being the way they are. No species deserves that.


That's the thing though, what else could they do? If they didn't go to war with the Geth, then the Reapers would have obliterated them.

They had much better odds fighting the Geth then Reapers. Seeing as how the Geth were under Reaper control, the Reapers themselves would not get involved in an attack against the quariens.


^ The Reapers would have obliterated them? I'm sorry, what the hell are you talking about? It's pretty clear that the Reapers entered the Galaxy through Batarian Space--------> concentrated their efforts on Humanity and then followed up with spread out attacks of attrition on the other races.....the Perseus veil was hit much later and from what we've seen the Quarians weren't engaged with any reaper forces prior to Shepard's involvement.

So no, the Quarians had plenty to do that involved avoiding war with the geth. Think recalling all quatrains and supporting the other races through mutual gain.

The Heretics weren't hurting them. The Geth had no reason to do anything about it. It was only until the Heretics tried to harm the Geth that it became a problem, otherwise they just want to be left alone.

I side with geth, so I can pick Destroy at the end and kill as many worthless aliens as possible.

So, some people may have strong opinions one way or the other, but it's my view that either option is a very sucky one that I feel uncomfortable making. With that being said...The, eh, Quarians, I suppose.
