    For me it would have to be a tie between the original Yugioh and the Yugioh 5D's I felt that both of them action packed compared tothe GX and Zexal but don't get me wrong I like those two as well just not as much.

    Since GX was my first and I have seen it 2 (some episodes 3) times I gotta say GX since I loved everything about it.
    I loved original YGO mainly because of Yami/Atemu so it's a biiiiiiit worse than GX.

          The last arc and only the last arc of Yugioh base was my favorite. For actual relation to the game, it'd probably be GX. 5Ds started fine, but ended up taking itself more serious that I'd like. Zexal is really feeling like a bad mahou shoujo series. I'll might like it more once second season starts up and the Astral World gets more involved, but for now, not so much.

          Original series for me, since it was the only one I ever watched.

          Also, Yugi is much better than the other main protagonists.

          Call me crazy, but I liked all 4 series, particularly the original series and 5D's, the former for the nostalgia factor and the latter for the "CARD GAMES ON MOTORCYCLES!" ZEXAL kind of comes in close for having a bunch of allusions to the past 3 series.

          I've enjoyed 5D's more than the rest of the shows, it was the first one I actually finished as it was airing. I'm having a lot of fun with Zexal at the moment, though it's nothing groundbreaking. I got pretty bored with GX around the end of the first 20 episodes and didn't really get back into it until the Yubel stuff started happening. And the first series is kind of all over the place for me thanks to the incredible amount of filler, but I can back to it weekly, so it must have been doing something right.

            The original was what started it all. Plus, the entire 5,000 year old Pharaoh storyline makes it a really great Anime. The newer ones have nothing over it. Yami Marik will forever be one of the most entertaining villain of all time! Don't get me wrong, I also love 5D, as Yusei is badass and would be tough to choose between him & Atemi as a duel partner. GX didn't really cut it nor have I tried Zexal, I know I won't like Zexal at all so I'm not even going to bother there.

              The original Yugioh. It's the only one I could get into. It's also a bit nostalgic; the heavily rewritten/edited dub had it's own charm that made it develop into it's own series(I compare it to Voltron/Go Lion and Ronin Warriors/Samurai Troopers).

              GX felt silly(Kaiba is that arrogant and obsessed over a game to make a freaking school for it).

              5D's was even more silly with dueling on motor cycles. It also tried too hard to be dark and they tried too hard to make Yusei like Yami/Atem.

              Zexal is basically a failed attempt at being a card version of Pokemon. If they had pulled it off well, I would have enjoyed it.

                My all time favorite is the original. Not because of Yugi, but because of the whole plot line and concept with the Millennium artifacts.

                GX feels ridiculous, but I never completed it so I don't know much about the story.

                Same goes for 5D's. Riding Duel feels just akward at first, but turns out to be pretty good when you watch the whole duel. But I only watched 20episodes so I have no idea about the story.

                I've yet to hear a good thing about Zexal, so I probably won't watch it anytime soon.

                Also, I have to recommend the Japanese version of Yu-Gi-Oh! It's just so different and more serious, with better music. I love it when Pharaoh says "Aibo!" (Partner). And I love their Engrish during duels.

                  5Ds, for what it was blatantly based on, plus the fact that Dark Signers was well done and brought me back to the franchise. Writing perspective, gotta say original over the followers.

                  GX was by and large the worst of the series. The plot was slow and incoherent at times, the main is a sue whose problems rarely make any amount if sense, and it s overall a mix of a bunch of other series' elements mashed together and given cards. However, props to Sartorius for refusing to duel after he had what he needed... Well, until Neos Hax.

                  5Ds is card games with Spiral Power. Seriously, watch the series while picturing it as Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann with cards. That's 5Ds. Yusei is a bad Yugi/Simon fusion.

                  ZeXal... Is marginally better than GX. That said... Its pretty awful. It takes elements from Megaman Starforce, Saint Seiya, and the like. Tron/Vetrix is like an Expy of Bermuda Von Vechtenstein from Katekyou Hitman Reborn, even his hatred fueled 69, And this list just goes on. Add to it, the main's annoying as all hell and butchers the idiot hero role to death.

                  Basically, you can't watch anything from this franchise without it ripping off/being an homage to/otherwise referencing at least 1 series heavily, if not more. They don't have any originality. Yes, it's true that originality is not everything, and that execution is superior, but... There's neither quality nor originality in the series after the original.

                    Nothing beats the original for me. It is what I grew up with.. it taught me so many things, gave me inspiration, gave me something to love.

                    If it wasn't for Yugioh I wouldn't have half the friends I do now. I wouldn't have met the person who introduced me to this forum. I wouldn't have met and fell in love with my boyfriend either. It helped shape my drawing and art style. It has influenced me a lot.

                    Yugioh is my childhood. It is my past but also my present, and I don't see it leaving any time soon.


                    The Japanese version was epic. The music was brilliant, the voices awesome, and the characters intriguing and/or fun!

                      I watched the first four seasons. Then I grew out of it.

                      I hated what they did to the show after. They ended one story and started another - like Pokemon should - but they didn't even make it remotely interesting, and instead relied on predictable duels with pathetically themed decks like E.Heroes and all of my interest just died, including in the actual TCG though that was more of a money thing.

                      I played the Yu-Gi-Oh TCG series for several years. I was good but not great and I never had whatever the "in" card was until it was no longer "in." I quit because of that (when Dark Armed Dragon was the card... that bleeping thing...). It was all about spending money, and there's a reason - several, actually - of why the franchise is pretty much dead. Just too short-term.

                        The original Yugioh was the one that impacted me the most, and I really enjoyed it along with some friends of mine for a few years. However, my favorite series is GX, I met some close friends of mine thanks to that series, and I loved the anime, and the characters, and etc. It was more fun for me than the original, even though I like them both.

                        5Ds.. eh, I watched a lot of it, but really sort of lost interest before it ended, and I've never seen and never intend to watch Zaxel.

                        Yu-Gi-Oh! season 0, Yu-Gi-Oh! and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX were the only ones I could really get in to. When 5Ds came around, that's when I stopped watching it because I couldn't understand how they could carry on the series with a card game on motorcycles.
                        totally tried not to use a Yugioh abridged series reference there

                          GX definitely, The seasons are different in tone, the first half of season 1 being a more whimsical start boiling up to a dark plot when the shadow riders arc began, Then season 2 new characters were introduced, a darker villain using destiny and his visions of the future as his weapon, not to mention one of Chazz's greatest achievement: winning the genex tournament. Season 3 soon followed with the survival duels, life and death situations and Jaden falling in to the dark side. Season 4, everyone trying to enjoy their last year at school and a darker evil attacks...

                            Yugioh the original one, since its the first one that I ever watched.

                            As for GX, I've only watch until about 100 episodes until I forgot what episode I stopped at and I stopped watching ever since.

                            As for 5Ds, heard of it, but have not watched it.

                            And WTF (first time swearing, but its short form) is Zexal.

                              Of all of them, I'd have to go with the original series, although it had its dark points - namely, everything after Yami Marik was beaten but before the last season, and the first series in which rules didn't exist and it was more like Bakugan than Yu-Gi-Oh! - at times. A fairly good cast, a great finale, and some very exciting duels, even if the outcome was obvious and they dragged on unnecessarily at times.

                              GX...I didn't really care for. I just couldn't like Judai as a character and, whilst the second season was much better than the first - see Judai getting trashed by Edo Phoenix was probably the highlight for me - it wasn't good enough to get me into it...and then there was the third and fourth seasons, which pretty much shut my interest in the franchise down until 5Ds started airing.

                              I really enjoyed the first season of 5Ds, but from that point afterwards I hate it even more than I do GX, because they absolutely destroyed Aki's character, and I will never forgive them for that. The series finale was worse than Death Note's, and that is shocking, considering how promising it was when it first aired. I wasn't overly bothered by the "card games on motorcycles" thing, to be honest; it was ridiculous, but it was quite interesting as well.

                              Zexal I've not seen...I'm reluctant to even give it a try, considering what a few of my friends have told me, and they know my tastes fairly well. If it ever gets shown on TV here I might watch an episode of two to see what it's like, but nothing I've seen really makes me want to watch it.

                                I enjoy GX's series with the Elemental Heroes, Dark Heroes but I think that 5D's is the best because of Crimson Dragon, Earthbound God and more. So, I will choose 5D's Series.

                                  I cried a little for 5D's. It was definitely the best personally for me, mostly because nobody cheated at the game (god damn season 1), and the cards weren't weirdly trash-tier or broken-tier like in GX. I highly doubt the theory that 5D's is based off Spiral Power as there's not really much correlation between Momentum and it; one is sort of like nuclear energy (in that it is fairly dangerous but powerful) and the other is a metaphysical concept given form by the sheer strength of one's willpower. While there might be some superficial similarities, I would not say that 5D's is unoriginal at all (I don't know why people hate on card games on motorcycles so much, they play card games normally too!).

                                  Zexal is for kids. Whatever, I'll pass.

                                  The original cause it was the only one I watched. I never really cared for the other series. I think I saw all most of all 5 seasons. I had a ton of cards and would duel my friends and brothers all the time. Then around 6th grade I lost interest. Somehow Pokemon stuck on but Yu-Gi-Oh didn't. I still have alot of the cards lying around on my bedroom floor, though I've burned some of them or threw them away.
