    It would probably be a tie between G Gundam and Gundam SEED, before SEED came along G Gundam was the only series that held my interest. I don't want to say that the other series were confusing but I was young and didn't want to watch anything that force me to think beyond my normal faculties. Anyways, I from what I hear SEED is a remake of a previous gundam series but with better animation (find by me :wink ).

    Well, for me it's a contest between Zeta and Seed. But Zeta wins. It just has everything i'm looking for in an anime.

    I liked the concept of Gundam Wing since only a few mentally can pilot Zero (Hero) while for Gundam S n SD relies more on the type of program being used.

    It's called 0083 Stardust Memory, and yes it's one of my favourites. The 0080 one is the War in the Pocket, a very sad tragedy and is also one of my favourites.

    In fact, from what I've watched so far (0080, 0083, 08 Team, F91, 0079 One Year War, W) I liked them all. I plan to watch Z and ZZ and V to finish the entire UC timeline. :)

    My favourite Gundam series is Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED Destiny. Why?

    The animating, music, story, is simply more appealing to me than the other Gundam series I've seen has. The main set-backs of the other older Gundam series is mostly the extreme re-usage of the same scenes, over and over again. SEED and SEED Destiny still has some problem with re-usage of scenes but it's not that much of a set-back compared to the older ones. Anyway. The minus with G SEED and G SEED Destiny is the character designs. Almost all characters look the same. It's almost as if it's the same face on all characters but with different eyes, different hairstyle and color.

    And of course, Freedom is there. One of the main reasons it's my fav Gundam. :p

    Seed is my favorite, other than that I have a hard time choosing between Zeta and 08th MS Team as my second fave. Seed Destiny is pretty freakin' good so far, but I'll wait till that finishes up before I put it up there as a favorite next to Seed.

    It has some similarities, but also has a fair amount of differences. I heard that it wasn't a remake, but a Gundam for the new...um..."era" I suppose. Something that will draw in new fans, but also keep the old Gundam fans happy. I do hear people making comparisons between Mobile Suit Gundam and Seed though. Hell, I can be accused of it too, sometimes I even look for similarities between Zeta Gundam (the sequel to MSG) and Seed Destiny (sequel to Seed of course). Can't help it :laugh

    I've seen Mobile Suit Gundam, Gundam X, Gundam G, Gundam Wing, Gundam SEED and Gundam F91 as of recently.

    Among those series, I'd choose Gundam SEED as my favorite. Why? Well, it's new, and despite its story and character flaws, I love the mecha fight scenes and designs. Oh yeah, can't forget Freedom, too! :D

    Next would be Gundam X. Original storyline, less depressing and of course, the Double X!

    I like you ^_^ Almost exactly the same, but I have a real soft spot for Seed because it was my first, and for MSG because I simply love the Zeon suits, Zaku, Z'Gok and Gelgoog are just sooo sexy. Why can't they make a HGUC Char's Gelgoog? :'( I'm on my way to getting all his suits in HGUC.

    Hehe i like u too :glomp

    I think everybody loves Wing so much coz it's the first Gundam series imported onto american TV (is it?)

    I gotta admit the Zeon suit is pretty special and they haven't "reused" this designed yet. But the Zaku design has been so reused that it has become quite obsolete imho.

    Gundam SEED is my favorite, though im pretty disapointed with Destiny since it seems its repeating what Gundam SEED was doing just in a ZAFT prospective. But i should watch more of the series, ive only watched upto episode 2.

    So far its still the original Mobile Suit Gundam, but SEED Destiny is gaining on it, just need to see where it goes from here.

    Okay I've seen Gundam Wing, 08th MS Team, and G Gundam. I thought I would ask in this thread which series you would recommend me to watch next because I haven't seen a Gundam series in awhile.

    Going back to topic, Gundam Wing was really good, but I love the Gouf Custom from 08th MS Team. Kind of tough to say which series was better, but I think 08th MS Team was a tad better than Gundam Wing.

    Gouf Custom r0xx0rs!

    OMFG that just reminded me how much i loved 8th team. That scene where Gouf and the "ace" pilot was owning Shirow's gang was simply amazing. It was so dramatic and there was so much tension in the air. The music for that part was perfect too.

    I remember there was this one scene in 08th MS team that I love and it was when they show the pilot of the Gouf and the Gouf mobile suit walking side by side. I think that was scene? Anyway, the battle was pretty intense and that cable that shot out of the Gouf's arm and immobilized the one Gundam was wicked.
