It is strange that Samsung would leave Game Mode out on a new TV. Game Mode turns of all video processing off and gives you whatever the source is giving it. When Game Mode is on, I think the image looks more natural since enabling Game Mode is the only true way to turn off Noise Reduction. When game mode is enabled, the TV's FPS (Frames per Second) increases.
Personally, I like Game Mode, especially when playing Bluray's. They don't need noise reduction and when Game Mode is enabled, your TV is displaying exactly whats on that disc without trying to alter the frames, image or any other aspect of the video.
