Although I understand the point of view behind it, I don’t think the quarians that appear during the time range of Shepard’s story should be blamed or mistreated for what their ancestors did with the geth those years ago. It’s like putting a brand-new baby into a jail cell for a crime the family’s great-great-great-great-great grandparent did long ago.
very true but i do believe the in-universe explanation is that because Asari are in power, and they have such a LONG life span, old issues are kept alive (which might explain why some Salarians take the genophage personally (the dalatras) even though they did not live for it)
People who condemn the quarians to die for this and make a blanket sweeping statement doing so are fucking disgusting. Those sort of mentalities fuel real world racial and ethnic prejudices so it disturbs me even when it’s being applied to a fictional species.
The geth weren’t innocent, they also murdered every single quarian that wasn’t lucky enough to get off Rannoch in time. Imagine if AI systematically murdered everyone, every single defenseless civilian, every innocent child, except the equivalent of the population of New York.
Both sides were in the wrong, and blaming people for the prejudices that they were brainwashed into believing by their forefathers is ridiculous. Besides, it’s made clear within ME3 that the bulk of the civilian fleet did not want to go to war with the geth.
