I am interested in watching the Fate/Stay series, I believe there are 3 series out there including the current one that is airing right now.
What order do you believe people should watch them in ?

Start with the current airing adaption and then watch Fate/Zero once it's over in Summer.

Long wait I know, Zero is a prequel that you could watch first but isn't recommended. (I watched it without knowing it was such and it didn't really hurt any though... Imo.)

I skipped 2006 FSN and most people will tell you to.

So the current one is a remake of the 06 series?

Watch them in whatever order you want. It won't really make a difference. But I reccomend skipping the remake and zero (garbage)

They're taking a different route than the 06 version but it's all very similar. I enjoyed the 06 version, but the one currently airing is far better.

More like the second route of the game.

The game is broke down like this
Fate (The boring route)
Unlimited Blade Works (The GAR route)
Heaven's Feel (The dark route)

Fate/Zero is a prequel but amuses that you have read the visual novel game or have seen the 2006 series, so the world building is not for someone entering the Nasu universe.

Do fate in this order:

Read the Visual novel.
Watch Fate/Zero
Watch Fate/Unlimited Blade Works.

DO NOT TOUCH THE 2006 SERIES.

I'd say watch the /Stay Night remake coming out now, and then watch Zero once that's over. And then do whatever you want nothing really matters after that.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-866973/fateguide-everything-you-need-to-know-to-get-into-the-series you can look through here to get an idea.

I don't know if there ever was a truly settled idea between Fate/Zero first or FSN first or if it matters but that thread has multiple people in it with multiple views.

As far as the 06 anime series I'd say try it to see if its something you may be interested in as its the only glimpse of the 'Fate' route available atm and imo is a decent story to start with; the current series is based on the 'UBW' route so it adds new things to the overall story (but will probably leave some things out since its one route and focuses on a different female love interest). Ignore people that say "Don't watch the 06 anime" as most of the time they're complete hypocrites/VN-fanboys, try it out and if its not your thing then thats fine and you can move on but at least you'll know then (rather than listening to the people I mentioned).

Don't mind him, he acted like a troll in one of the discussion pages.

Not hardly, as I said before you want a troll I can invite a few and you can have a meet-n-greet. I spoke like someone with a brain rather than as someone that only goes with the fanboy thought train. I also gave a link to a thread that would give more info on the series (some that I disagree with but still info), what did you give? Your opinion and pathetic attempt to one up someone.

I searched for a thread regarding this matter nothing popped up from the search thanks for the link. Im a pretty open minded person though it seems like this whole Fate series thing is deeper than I thought im even more interested now !!!

Looks like you've already got some good replies, so I'm going ahead and closing this. The topic comes up often, but a search for "Fate/Stay" shows a number of existing threads where the question could be asked--including Fate/guide: Everything you need to know to get into the series which I'm sure covers this very question (as do several of the other threads--though you might risk running into some spoilers in those others).

ETA: Ah, and I see someone did already point to that thread. Sorry for the unnecessary repetition.
