Real Robots, like Gundams (except for G Gundams, which are considered super robots) or Aestivalises, are fast and easily maneuverable, but not very tough and is limited by real world physics.

Super Robots, like GaoGaiGar or Shin Getter Robo, are usually large and immensely powerful, but can barely evade and surpasses even conceivable physics. Also, their moves have to be shouted out.

God Machines, like Demonbane, Evangelion, Ideon or RahXephon, have wills of their own, have near limitless or limitless energy sources and some house potentially world or even universe destroying powers. Their powers usually activate after a lot of conditions are fulfilled.

note: In God Machine stories, many people tend to die (i.e. a country, a planet or galaxy, or the universe), more often then not, main characters die as well.

Also, Super Robot and God Machine anime have theme songs made specifically for that show.

If you feel so inclined, you could go vs.

Personally, I'd pick real robots, partially because Gundams are real robots. And Akito Tenkawa's Black Serena is a real robot, even if it's big, black and can teleport. Go Prince of Darkness!

Dude, Eva a God Machine but Shin Getter not? Skewed man, skewed.

In any case, I pick the mega over the top Super Robots.

Genesic GaoGaiGar, Shin Getter Robo, Mazinkaiser, DyGenGuard... Stuff like that.

From what I know, Shin Getter doesn't have a will of its own. The God Getter incarnation is probably a god machine, but I think it's just called that because of its awesome power.

P.S. I didn't make this stuff up. I found it somewhere and thought to throw it out and see what other people would think.

Shin Getter is the Avatar of Getter, ie the very essence of evolution. Shin Dragon's probably a more visually obvious example though.

Ryoma just jacks up the awesome and goes all GETTER SHINE! with Hayato and Benkei.

In any case, I guess most God Machines tend to fight the same way. They got bombed like mad, discover a mad new power, and whoop-ass. See: Ideon Gun, Berserk Eva, RahXephon in general. Makes them appealing only pretty much visually, not like Super Robots where they fight using only WILL and AWESOME.

The Astranagant is a hybrid super robot/real robot as it does not require its moves to be shouted out, can be damaged by other real robots (grunts included) and it works within conventional and theoretical physics. But it does house immense power like the Infinity Cylinder and the Axion Cannon.

The Dis Astranagant can be considered a god machine as it evolved a will of its own through the T-Link system and has limitless power. It is the polar opposite of Ideon in Super Robot Wars.

Let me say that though Evas function like real robots (i.e. easily damaged, needs repairing and utilizing conventional weapons), they are made from the flesh of a divine being (the Angel Adam [except for 01 which was made from Angel Lilith), accumulate wills (except for units 04-13), mentioned in prophecy and can merge all living beings (Third Impact). With these in mind, Evas can be considered a God Machine/Real Robot hybrid.
