    Right now I just play 3...Nxe4

    What should I play after 4.Qe2 or 4.Nxe5?

    d5 looks good.

    3..d5 blunders a pawn i think. exd5 nxd5 Nxe5 Qe7 O-O, no easy way to recollect it, perhaps a gambit is in need here.

    3..d5 4.exd5 e4 5.Qe2, and play from here is probably better for white, its not immediately clear how black will justify the pawn sacrifice.

    Think the OP asked about move 4, where he always plays Nxe4 on move 3.

    3...Nxe4 is the Urusov gambit I think. Taking is theoretically best but you're probably going to be defending until move 20 something...
