    Well, in my opinion, all Ace Attorney games are really good.
    While the original game was awesome, introducing the main characters and all, I think that the last cases (the ones that last 3 days, I don't remember if the third was one of those or not) were really... not boring, but too long. I'm really glad that every case after that is not longer that 2 days.
    Justice for all is really good in my opinion. I think that people hate it that much because it doesn't have much connection between the other games (with the Fey clan backstory and all). I really like the option to present profiles (too bad they removed it afterwards :( ). The final case was really awesome, and really surprised me. The bad end is so sad though ;_;
    I think Trials and Tribulation is great. The music is simply awesome, playing as Edgeworth was really cool, and Godot is probably the second best prosecutor (after Edgeworth). While I agree that Dahlia being used as the villain 3 times is a little dumb, it was probably to tie the past and present of the series together. And the massive amount of psyche locks didn't really bother me actually.
    Apollo Justice was also great. The music, once again, was amazing, and the every single case was interesting. And case 5's investigation system is simply awesome. No more searching for one item for ten hours and things like that. I hope they use it again in the future. There is only one thing that annoyed me...
    I didn't play Dual Destinies yet, but from what I've seen in the trailer and the demo, I prefer the good old voices and 2D sprites. I'll buy it when I have the money :P
    The first investigation was really good. While the mechanics stay the same, the way they are put is really different, and well done in my opinion. The third person investigation mode is better than the traditional one in my opinion, it allows to have a better overview of the crime scene. I also liked that many characters from the main series were present. And even if the art style is different from the main games, it's still really good. The storyline is also very well made, and all cases are linked (there's no filler episode in this game, which is great).
    I'm playing the Investigations 2 right now, and so far, it's good. It's the direct continuation of the first one, and once again, previous characters make their come back. I obviously can't judge it right now, but I'm pretty sure it'll be great.
    I found the Professor Layton crossover really enjoyable. Really. The OST is awesome, the voice acting is really good. My only regret was that there is only one special Ace Attorney puzzle, because the concept was really epic. It was the only thing that bothered me, until... the end of the game.
    SPOILERZ (again)
    I *tried* to play Dai Gyakuten Saiban a little, but since my japanese is really bad, I abandoned at the end of the first chapter, because I had to search the meaning of 70% of the kanjis... Anyway, it seemed to be a really cool game. I'll probably try to play it again once my japanese will be better.

    Anyway, I think my favorite would be either Trials and Tribulation or Apollo Justice.
