It is a good question and one I would expect an easy answer to.
Some of us still shoot 5x7 to 12x20 film so we can contact print for the quality it gives us.
Most of the cameras on the market, film or digital, will do a nice job for many purposes. Small differences are what help us choose one over the other. Nothing wrong with ultimate image quality being a deciding factor.
I find it puzzling that this type of question is not asked more often as it seems to me that ultimate image quality is more important than anything else much of the time. Format, subject matter and final image size requirements help with the decision, but wanting the highest image quality possible taking those into account mkes sense.
