This is easy for me - I don't like either of them much, but Queen seem far more inventive and melodic to me.

Hmmm, Queen for me although I love Sabbath too and started with music listening long time ago with both bands together (along with many others).

Concerns metal influences etc. it's clear Sabbath is the main influence for later metal bands. Queen was never hard rock or heavy metal band per se (although their first three records could easily be boxed in "hard rock" shelf). On the other side Queen truly had some songs with metal base. The Stone Cold Crazy is well known example (maybe for the Metallica cover later), but Ogre Battle is IMHO even better example (although less known) of speed metal song in times nobody knows such term.

But even for me it's hard to say  Queen is big metal influence for later bands. Queen itself was influenced by many musical genres and they in return influenced a lot of bands counting in it metal ones (May's guitar playing could have impact on many hard rock and metal guitarists though).

Btw. Brian May and Tony Iommi are good friends and I remember I saw them together in studio chatting and then playing some Shadows' song they both liked (Apache maybe?? I don't remeber exactly) - it was probably during Smoke On The Water song re-recording (Rock Aid Armenia in '88) and it was great fun seeing and listening them :-)

Though I recognize the value, creativity and inventiveness of Queen, Black Sabbath resonates more with me.

I vote for Black Sabbath because they were more fundamental band for all rock music.

I love both.

In the 70s, they were both amazing and quite original. 
I'd rather listen to 80s BS to 80s Queen.

Sabbath, by about a million lightyears for me.
