There is no better or worse.  The new superglobals 
were introduced in PHP 4.1.0.  Use them how you wish.  

Also consider extract() and/or import_request_variables().  
Personally I like:

  import_request_variables('gpc', 'r_');

Which in your example would result in:

  print $r_var;

But it depends, going through predefined variables 
everytime can be fun too.
