How to create a vintage photo effect in Photoshop

I was searching for Photoshop methods to create a vintage look for my pictures, and found different methods, but couldn't figure which one is the best. They all look good to me. I guess it depends on the vintage mood I want to give.

The photo selection is important, as some are more suited than others. As you can see, the picture below doesn't do it justice. Anyways, here is the comparison (tutorial link provided), clockwise starting with the upper-left picture being the original, followed by vintage #1, vintage #2, vintage #3.

The last vintage example has more of a yellow tone, with noise effect. Which one do you prefer? I'm inclined for the first one.
