Wow, great taste you've got there.

For me, it would be Great teacher onizuka (for the great comedy and drama)and Monster (for the amazing story, characters and mystery).

One Piece, Naruto, and Bleach proved to be boring (at times) and repetitive for me; so I think the shonen manga that I liked the most is Fairy Tail. Gintama is great too.

For me, Gintama is the greatest shounen, it has everything a shounen manga needs + the greatest troll lol.
Other than that, Akumetsu and Great Teacher Onizuka is a great read as well.

what about plot? to me Gintama doesn't really seem to follow a genuine plot like all the other shonen. :3

All the ones I rated highly!

If I'd choose only one it would be 20th Century Boys (even says so in my list comments).
Special mention goes to Jojo's for having by far the most creative battles I've read (and probably in all of manga) continuously for more than 20 years.

Not sure about greatest but Touch is by far my favorite manga I've read. A lot of the manga listed so far (like Aria, Monster, YKK) are great but there seems to be a lack of mention for romance! Maison Ikkoku and Mars being the best of their trade.

20th Century Boys probably but it's hard to choose. These ones are also really good:

Dangu

Vinland Saga

Blade of the Immortal

Shin Angyo Onshi

Homunculus

The Breaker

Liar Game.

Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou - yes it's the best and I doubt that something better will be made (not that I would mind that :P )

also
Ah! My Goddess - older series are great (I survived the art shift at the beggining) and it's way funnier than anime

Aria and Aqua
Azumanga Daioh
Yotsuba&!

Can't agree more ^^ - The one and only manga I consider a masterpiece.

Aside from that maybe Angel Densetsu, Kare Kano and Girl Friends - as the manga that influenced me the most.
