For me, it's all about how the graphics will be used. I've noticed that a lot of games use the hard shading and I wonder if it's because it's easier to create? Perhaps also it's not as big of a graphic file that way? The sample #2 is a softer shading, but still not completely soft of a blend. If you want the piece to look more realistic, the darkest dark shouldn't be all the way to the edge, but in more and then have a gray behind it. So it will be gray, highlight, gray, dark, gray.
