I notice a lot of people solve centers first, then edges, then like a 3x3, then fix the parity errors.

Have you guys tried solving them using the methods that don't involve parity issues?  If so, is there a reason that you prefer solving them in the ways that give parity errors?

There is the cage method...in which edges are paired up first and then centers are solved. This method eliminates parity. However it isn't used as much because fixing parity is very fast. Reduction can be done very fast as well. There is no reason to worry about eliminating parity because you are using a faster method. If parity occurs, then the fix for it is fast.

The hardest I solved is the Square-1, I solved it once without any method, I still didn't looked for algorithms, I want to solve it again:P after the square one it's the 4x4x4, I sont have any method for any of my puzzles exept the 3x3x3 so it's pretty hard to solve bigger cubes.

I still have problems with my rex cube, and I have yet to solve my face turning octahedron, my 4x4 trajber's octahedron, my rubiks triamid, rubiks XV, rubiks dice, and my skewb ultimate. Oh, and the super square-1 is just plain annoying because the central drum misaligns. Oh and the square-1 because the corner pairing gets annoying.

The axis cube is hard until you get your head round it, then it's the same as a 3x3. Same with all the 3x3 shape mods - diamond cube, hexagona dipyramid, trajber's octahedron, rhombic dodecahedron, blade cube, hexagonal prism cube, corner turning octahedron etc. The only one of these I have issues with is the mastermorphix, because the edges get mixed up since they are all the same.
Please take off topic discussion off this forum. Thanks.

For puzzles that I've looked up how to solve, I'd say that the 4x4x4 was the most challenging. For ones that I figured out myself, megaminx.
