I was running the iCarly-guy's settings on User/Custom but found the delay in video games a problem so switches to Game. Any disadvantage to watching in Game mode all the time if I already had Motion Enhancement and other "features" off?
Also - very little clouding here. Sept 2011 unit.
The best over-all mode to use on the 632's is GAME mode, plain & simple. I have run all the tests and posted the average variance from Movie (140ms) to Game (30ms) in the 60LE632 thread. There is also less chance for judder and sync issues in Game mode. You'll also see less motion issues on the 632 if you set your blu ray player to 60Hz vs 24hz. As an example try chapter 8 of Star Wars ROTS, as the ship is lowering into the pit watch for all the stepping in 24Hz vs 60 Hz. I know this goes against the grain of using 24Hz with a 120Hz display but the tests do not lie.
I think many are simply assuming they should not use Game mode if they do not game, this would be a misplaced assumption.

All of the setting so far have been too red for me. There is truth every set being slightly different, but it's a nice stating place. Also, I like a little bit of 120HZ on some movies as well, but sadly will not work on game mode.
Odds are if you feel all of the settings you are seeing posted are too red then you prefer a cooler blue pushed image, you may want to simply pick a calibration and stick with it for a couple days and see if you can adjust to something more accurate (most that give it a shot actually end up wondering how they watched that blue pushed image to begin with).
Also please keep in mind that copying settings from one mode to another does not keep that mode calibrated, there are Color Temp variances from mode to mode that are not user adjustable (meaning default Low color temp on Game is not the same as Low color temp on Movie and so on, verified with a sensor).
For those that are interested we have covered most of this in the 60LE632 thread. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1376737
Best of luck,
