Big formats just look better IMO, even when resolution is no different. I find it takes two stops less speed AND a shift to modern tabular films to match the 6x7 traditional 400 films in technical performance; the ye olde films just look juicier and with more bite at the same print size.
Really it does not matter because circumstances dictate which format is practicable and there is no comparison shot. You either have a great image or you don't.
