    In general I try to stay away from mech series, but I'll try to give Gundam a try. Which are the best?

    gundam really isn't that great of a franchise :o
    overhyped

    wing/endless waltz were pretty good and 08th ms team is by far the best gundam ever made. don't listen to kira, seed/seed destiny suck major dong.

    I really enjoyed the 8th MS Team (tv), 0083 (movie/series), F91 (movie), and Zeta (tv/redone movies).

    00 is slowly starting to grow on me.

    are any of the series linked at all, like crossover characters or events in one series being referenced by another like in the past or something, or are they all just completely separate but based in the same universe?

    08th MS team's a good one. and i actually liked g gundam (mainly b/c it was like the first gundam series i ever saw), although i hated domon and his cheapness.

    Mobile Suit Gundam, and 08th MS team are probably the best to start with story wise.


    I think I have 08th MS team on another PC I'll take a look and get back to you.

    8th MS Team - More realistic (none of that one man killing machine, they coodinate plans and fight as a team)

    0080 War in the Pocket - You are more centered on the Zeon group. You feel sympathy for the Zeon pilot, unlike in other Universal Century series that are more Federeation centered. You will feel very attached to the characters. Damn it Bernie :wtc:

    0083 Stardust Memories - I just loved it

    MS Igloo - a short 3D series that is Zeon centered. You follow a group of weapons testers during the one year war. If you know a little about World War 2, you can see many similarities between them. Such as the Zeons constant weapons testing and development like the Nazis, and the shift from Large Artillery Cannons to Mobile Suits like the shift from warships to airplanes in the Pacific. The desperation for soldiers so they begin using children and pre-teens to pilot shitty mobile armors.
    Artillery Cannon + Zaku + Tank chassis = :bowdown:

    Gundam Evolve - short 3D clips that continue past series, show alternate endings or redesigns.

    GP-03 in all it's beauty

    Wing Zero Custom - this one was really cheesy, used alot of Star Wars sound effects
