Default Alternative Characteristic Rolling Techniques?

I was just wondering what the consensus was on how you allow your players to roll their characteristics.
The 2d6 6 times can be a bit brutal and lead to some seriously low scores. Are you okay with having a character with several characteristics from 2-5?
In any case, here are a few mods that I've either thought about, or have read about.
1: Roll 2D6 10 times and pick the best 6 results
2: Roll 1D6+6 6 times
3: Roll 3D6 and drop the lowest die.

Does anyone have any other methods that have worked well? Does one method lead to a more, or less, "pulpy" game?
