You answered your own question man, "To me I get a much more intense workout doing 3 straight sets than I would have with ramping," why would you want to ramp if you like straight sets more?
Furthermore, the point of ramping is so you can do more than 60 x 10 on that last set, why on earth you would do 20 x 10, 40 x 10, and 60 x 10 when you are strong enough to do 60 x 10, 60 x 10, 60 x 10 is beyond me. The point of ramping is to get you warmed up for that 80 x 10 set.
I do straight sets and ramping sets, these questions are frusturating to me because you said you have been lifting for 10 years and this is so basic my friend.
You know what works, do it, nobody here can tell you what works best for you, only you can make that decision so do your thing.
