Let me clarify. I do not meant the eras I mean the continuity’s. For example, GMK is connected to the OG film and so is the rest of the showa, but the rest of the showa and GMK are not in the same timeline.

I like The anime continuity and I also like the GMk one

The Showa era timeline! It’s one of the first cinematic universes, what more to say

Showa, Showa and Showa. But not because of any connective tissue that makes up the concept of a "continuity". Rather the movies are just the best.

In terms of tight continuity that makes the best use of the concept, including great, stand alone movies, the Godzilla series falls pretty short. The Gamera Trilogy on the other hand is probably the best example of a kaiju continuity utilized with top tier quality.

I like the (tiny) tristar Godzilla (not really Godzilla) 1998 movie and the follow up series, (I still need to watch it)

Mosterverse is tied with the tristar one.

In all honesty, I'm just satisfied that the MonsterVerse managed to execute their general idea well...I think it's not as good as the MCU but it's still pretty great since I like most of the MonsterVerse's movies (with the sole exception of Godzilla 2014).

Also, don’t forget that TECHNICALLY GMK is part of the TriStar universe.

I don't really like Godzilla (2014), the 2nd act dragged.  The first 40 minutes were interesting enough but I got really bored at the hour mark and went to the third act.  It's a slog of a kaiju movie, while I do appreciate it's realism and darker tone.

KaijuBuildz,
More of a retroactive thing.

The 1998 movie is part of its own continuity.

GMK just includes the 1998 garbage in its own continuity, due to the joke made at the beginning of the film.

So they're still two continuities since one doesn't include GMK.

Is it best to skip the 1998 one btw?

It's just that I want to make sure I'm not wasting my time...

@sonictiger. Many people don’t like 1998 but I do and I don’t think you should skip it.

sonictiger,
I'm an advocate for watching everything to make your own decision. So watch it.

...but it's a train wreck stock piled on sewage to blueprint everything wrong with 1990s blockbuster filmmaking. Let's just say there's a reason marketing campaigns have not been as over the top since this thing. There's also a reason Maria Pitillo didn't have a career after this movie...

Ok, by saying, “everything wrong with 1990s blockbuster filmmaking,” do you mean that the original Jurassic park is bad?

No. I mean the cliches of bad 1990s blockbusters were funneled into it without remorse.
