Mine is Pikmin 3. I never actually played the original two, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I ended up loving it. The touchscreen controls work excellently, and the graphics are amazing. I'm really hoping they make a Pikmin 4 soon.
PLAY THE ORIGINALS PLEASE
Seriously though you don't know what you're missing.
Pikmin 3 was made to be more like Pikmin 1 than 2, so you might enjoy that one more.
I personally prefer Pikmin 2, for caves (different than what you know of Pikmin 3) were randomized and a lot of strategy would be applied to going through them. Also, the maps were much smaller and less confusing.
Lastly I believe Pikmin 1 and 2 were made by a different team than Pikmin 3, but my research hasn't yielded much. All I could find out is that the team behind the somewhat disappointing (to me, anyway) NSMB series developed Pikmin 3.
As for Pikmin 4...
I'm placing bets on a Pikmin 4 for the New 3DS simply because they talked about how the 3DS was slightly underpowered, so they stopped experimenting with it. However the New 3DS is much more powerful; this can be shown by the Xenoblade Wii port. Not only that, but the Pikmin Short Movies were released at the last Nintendo Direct, and Miyamoto wants to develop more Pikmin games. Plus the ending of Pikmin 3 was open as well. ( Louie was left behind plus maybe another spaceship crash...
) Lastly, the team behind Pikmin 3 is developing Mario Maker, but that game can't take up the entire team's time. So something will definitely come soon.
Oh, and so far I think my favorite game on the Wii U might either be Super Mario 3D World or DKC: Tropical Freeze.
