It's really a tough call. Leon's a better leading man, Sheva's a better partner, 4's a better story, Wesker's a better big bad...
One thing I really missed was the volume of QTEs in 4. Those were actually well-done, and kept you on your toes during the cutscenes. The only time 5 felt like it reached that same level was the short run in the underground temple, on the tanker in 6-2, and the in-between phase with Wesker.

In RE5, you can finally kick Wesker's ass. You have no idea how long fans have been waiting to get that guy.
In RE4, Ashley was a real pain. She couldn't fight back and she keeps getting grabbed by enemies and gets taken away. Now in RE5, your partner can fight alongside with you (if you can get over the fact that she shoots your ass for a few times through each level) so RE5 wins best partner.
Better cast of villains I will have to give to RE4 because Krauzer and the Big Cheese were awesome. Excellia I don't call an awesome villain because it isn't the first time I've seen a woman that had a lust for power and gets incredibly annoying.
The inventory I'm obviously giving to RE4. Why Capcom didn't move that to RE5 is beyond me.
Most attarctive women I'm giving to RE4 because Ada in that red dress is one of the many reasons people buy the game.
Best weapons. Again, RE4.
Best story plot I'm giving to RE4.
Presidents daughter kidnapped > Trouble in Africa
Best boss battles I'm going to give this a tie.
Best enemy AI. Again, tie.
Best main character. Chris wished he was as awesome as Leon.
RE4 retained some spooky elements from it's predecessor.
The zombified enemies in RE4 looked freakier, the pale white look and the continuous chanting just added to that effect.
RE5 wasn't scary at all. I did like the idea of having a partner that can actually fight, but Ashley being unable to fight gave you a tougher time to battle your way out of the game, which I like.
The more difficult the game is, the more thrilling the game becomes.
At least for me, because I like difficult games. RE4 was more challenging, and I prefer it more than RE5.
