I am pretty new to anime. I have watched and really enjoyed AOT, SAO, RWBY, and Log Horizon.
I am looking for something centered around Mechs that I can watch here on Crunchyroll from the beginning.

Also would appreciate any other anime shows that are centered around videogames, like SAO or Log Horizon.
I watched an episode of No Game No Life, but it did not hook me. I may try it again later....I might have burned myself out on videogame anime.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions. I guess it would be cool to suggest anything available on Netflix too.

Code Geass, Gundam, NGE, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet are some of my favorites
Edit: Saw you wanted to watch on them on CR, Gargantia is on CR but you can go through this list

Hello there, if you're looking for a Mech anime to watch THIS season then just watch Aldnoah.Zero, it's showing promise and hopefully you'll enjoy it.

If you want something tried and true then it depends on what kind of mech series you're looking for.

If you want something in depth and politically focused then watching some Gundam of some kind sounds like a treat. If you want a thrilling mech show with nice strategic purpose then you'll want Code Geass. Lastly I recommend TTGL (Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann) for being an awesome mind-numbing experience where you just sit back and watch amazingness. There are plenty of other choices out there so take a look around first, but that's somewhere to get you started.

Good luck

Knights of Sidonia on Netflix is a good mecha that came out this season. If you can get over the animation style.

Broken Blade.

also, posts like these should really go in the pre-existing 'recommend me an anime' sticky thread.

You should try Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, its the best anime I have seen so far. Aldnoah.Zero is pretty good too, both are on crunchyroll.

LOL, and the train wreck that is Valvrave. Never mind that one.
