I do a lot of gaming and I think you'll be OK with either one in regard to lag as both TV's have a game mode which disables most of the image processing features. Ghosting will probably be more problematic on the Samsung as the 2011 models suffered from many of the same issues as the 2010 sets.
I have played Uncharted 3, Sonic Generations, Halo Anniversary, Call of Duty Black Ops and Killzone 3 in native 3D on my LG and they all looked and played great with zero lag and no ghosting.
Also, while I can't comment on the Samsung, the LG has a very useable 2D to 3D mode that works quite well with games that don't natively support 3D. Journey for the PS3 is complemented very nicely with 2D to 3D conversion.
