I prefer Perpendicular , I fell more comfortble with Perpendicular picking, although i'm having hard time picking the right strings with my electric guitar, I guess I should practice more

For a moment I thought this was whether we prefer perpendicular or diagonal fretting with our left hand (for the record, I prefer perpendicular because it's more classical and looks neater, but my fingers are wonky so I have to do diagonal).

In answer to the original question - perpendicular.

I prefer diagonal. I'm not quite sure why, I've got a bit of a lazy, but insanely aggressive, downpicking-heavy style, and I do a lot of pickscrapes too, so I guess that's why I like diagonal better.

Nah, I prefer to tune lower. My tunings usually go into weird Hebrew symbols.

Diagonal, I prefer the attack and the pick glides across the strings more smoothly during fast playing.

They get different tones from the guitar - they're good for different things. I usually switch between them depending on the tone I want.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.
