Just got my i1 Display Pro, what gamma/room brightness?

So i am going to calibrate my monitors for the first time today. I watched videos on DisplayCal to prepare and i see that in the beginning settings they ask what gamma you want to calibrate for, which depends on if you edit in a brightly lit room or dark room or w/e. what type of room lighting is ideal? I know that you want neutral white light if you have any light in your editing space, avoid reflections and direct light on monitor blah blah. but what gamma/room light brightness is best for editing? higher gamma/brighter lights, or lower gamma (which i like the look of...)/darker room
