In-terms of Gundam series, I would have chosen Gundam 00. Celestial Being's Gundam meisters seem to work as a team more efficiently than most other Gundam teams that I know of, especially the Operation Meteor pilots from Gundam Wing, due to them specializing in melee, sniping, aerial assault, and heavy artillery. And, I can't forget about Louise Halevy and her tragic arc, how she went from a spoiled, yet charming and innocent rich girl, to a physically and psychologically traumatized mess bent on seeking revenge against her parents' killers... including her own boyfriend, Saji Crossroad!

As for non-Gundam series, it's Code Geass. The reason is because, compared to most other mecha anime featuring a pilot as the main-protagonist, in CG's case, the main-protagonist is, instead, a commanding officer with strategic thinking skills and leadership qualities on the level of Shiroe from Log Horizon. And, there is a lot of Chess metaphors to reinforce its strategic elements, from C.C. acting as Lelouch's queen, to Suzaku Kururugi and Kallen Kozuki working as knights for Britannia and the Black Knights, respectively.

I... never really got into Gundam, but... for "non-Gundam", it would probably be Patlabor or Gasaraki, though with a broad enough definition of 'mecha', Ghost in the Shell or Battle Angel Alita.

Not a huge fan of mecha anime, but I do like G Gundam and the original 1983 Macross or even IGPX (I hope that there will be a future for giant robots in motorsports). Outside of mecha anime, I prefer MechWarrior or BattleTech, deeper futuristic war story then your average mecha anime and I think that MechWarrior 2 would have been the supreme space opera and war anime. On a side note, I think Omega Boost would have made a great mecha anime about man vs machine with more epic space battles.

I'm torn between 8th MS, Wing and Fighter G for Gundam series, not because they were the first I got involved in, but I felt they set the stage for where Gundam could truly go.

as for non Gundam there are too many Cowboy Bebop topping the list, a true mech legend in my opinion. ghost in the shell falling into second, keeps on coming and still many mech and tech. whereas for third I'm going with Space Dandy, a new CB. just going with the top three since too many will look spamish.

Favorite Gundam series is 00. Everything just clicks on all cylinders with this show, and best of all it's easier to follow than most other Gundam series, which tend to be overly complex and sometimes, not for the better.

As for non-Gundam, that would be Code Geass. The ending pretty much says it all, and I'll leave it at that.

Gundam 0083 I guess, though it's been so long since I've seen it that I wonder if it would hold up.
Saying Evangelion is probably cheating so I have to agree with gorn and go with Patlabor.
