I really want to say Andromeda but when you can see the Milky Way "edge-on" (as it where) with the naked eye it's just stunning, (the other two you need specialist equipment to see), then I'm picking that.

Untill the Andromeda galaxy crashes into us in 3.75 billion years time anyway.

Itís this thing called nuclear weapons.
And other things.
Like lots of things are done with uranium.
Including some bad things.
But nobody talks about that."

^ maybe. Triangulum is so much smaller it may get swept up beforehand or just blown away.

it is the third largest galxy but a dwarf compared to Milky Way and Andromeda i know

40 billion stars vs 100 billion stars vs 200 billion stars = Triangulum, Milky Way and Andromeda

...or 40 billion vs 400 billion vs 1000 billion
 
However it is not the number of stars that is important, but the mass - Andromeda and The Milky Way have approximately equal mass and will affect each other more or less equally - Triangulum is 200 times smaller and will be swatted like a fly by one of the others.

It was a tough choice between the Andromeda Galaxy and Other (the Star Wars Galaxy).  Andromeda won due to its actual existence.

I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

It makes me want to sing "Astronomy Domine" with new lyrics: " Lime and limpid green / a second scene,
A fight between the blue / you once knew.
Floating down the sound surrounds
Milky Way, Andromeda and Triangulum, Neptune, Titan
Stars can frighten".

I'l just vote for the Milky Way simply because that's where we find ourselves.
If I knew that Andromeda or Triangulum host cooler beings than us (which is not that hard) I might change my vote.
