I remember the first time i saw a medium format film negative printed.  Both a 6 x 9 negative as well as a 6 x 4.5 negative printed to only 5 x 7 absolutely CRUSHED a 35mn negative printed the same size.  It was so different, you could pick out the medium format print 100% of the time.

Clearly resolution mattered then.  Why would it not matter now??

Much of the improvement with larger film formats is in gradation rather than resolution.
