Its a tie between tribetwelve and Marble Hornets, I can't really say that I favor one over the other.

TheRiddleOfTheTreeMan, because interaction, classic Michaelverse original characters, great and confusing plot, and the feeling that you can actually make a difference (which has already been proved that you can).  

My second favorite is a tie between ICANSEETHEGIANT and Michael'sCamera. 

ICStG because it is horribly creepy that the characters are a 9-ish year old boy, a 12-ish year old girl, and a 15-ish year old boy.  The feeling of isolation is also there, as none of the characters interact with anybody outside of the supernatural. Teacher is also a great original character.

MC because it is kind of like TheRiddleOfTheTreeMan Lite. It focuses more on the original characters, and introduces the MEEC.  Michael is also a complete badass by the end, and kills many of the monsters, including the slenderman (who doesn't really play a big part, so it doesn't end up mattering that much).  The only real issue I have is the cop-out ending that was forced because of some asshole reporting the channel to the police (most likely because there is a scene where Michael is slitting his wrists, which looks very realistic).  Without that though, there would likely be no RotTM, so it was kind of a blessing in disguise.

Marble Hornets, hands down. It was my first exposure to the mythos after I'd seen a couple of the classic Slenderman photos drifting around on a message board somewhere, and after a bit of poking I decided to check a vlog out. I picked Marble Hornets because it was the first vlog series and one of the longest, and I'm a sucker for long ongoing works. I certainly wasn't disappointed. The magnitude of the vlog is astounding - the first entry was posted 4 years ago, and events that happened back then are still totally relevant now. It keeps me asking questions constantly, the personal mythos of the vlog isn't overly complicated and the sets and locations are fantastic. 

My second favourite vlog is TribeTwelve. Another long-runner, with an interesting story and excellent effects work. I put it below Marble Hornets because the story and in-vlog mythos seems a little convoluted at times and the confusion sometimes annoyed me more than intrigued me, but I still love it. The crossovers with other series is also a big draw. 

I never really got into any of the blogs, mostly because I came to the party a little late and I discovered all this during a really hectic time in my life (exams, exams, exams and more exams) so the videos were easier on my eyes rather than yet more walls of text.

Has to be EMH. I really don't follow more than like 6 series, but this one is the one that always keeps me at my toes. 
Also would like to give credit for my second fav Pavel Hall that I've recently found interesting.


But well, obviously nothing beats MH, it's just that it's been a little 'slow going' for almost a year now, with very little anything happening, occasionally something but idk.

 I'm definitely gonna have to check those out, they sound really good.

MarbleHornets, What else can I say.

WhisperedFaith (even though it isn't really a slender series), Its fucking awesome and well made.

MLAndersen0 is a really great series and I Highly recommend it.

TheWestRecords is not a Slender Man based series but its an amazing and well made series which I recommend.

MLAndersen0 for it's character driven narrative and unmatched acting. Only wish they would update more often Smile

A well deserved second place goes to EMH, for the most complex and interesting plots with a truly creepy atmosphere. I do think it has gone down in quility significantly, since they stopped putting out side content and killed off most of their characters. What I loved about the classic EMH was the sense that the events took place in a larger world, but that has more or less disappeared now.

Other than my own (I kid) I think its gotta be Pavel Hall, TrialOfLeaves, SAPH (I'm inclined to love that one), and Tea13Time. Why? I can actually stand them. xD 
Tbh I'm not a "big series" kind of person. (inb4 "wow so hipster")

TribeTwelve, by far. Next best would be DarkHarvest, and MLA after that.

It's a tie between MarbleHornets and TribeTwelve. I like them both for many reasons. I like MH for it's mystery and atmosphere, and TT for it's realism and incredible special effects. It's hard for me to choose one from the other.
