As a big Batman comic book nerd, I honestly love the animated movies and TV series more partly because they were my childhood but mainly because they stayed much more truthful to the comic book storylines than the live-action movies ever had.

Live-Action Batman movies (The Dark Knight trilogy, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, etc.)
I grew up with the 90s Animated Series (and its accompanying "Mask of the Phantasm" movie), and to this day that version of the character is still THE definitive interpretation of Batman and Bruce Wayne to me. :D I rewatched a few dozen episodes recently, and in some ways it's even better to me now than it was when I was little.
The only thing that I prefer one of the live-actions for is: Christopher Nolan/Anne Hathaway's version of Catwoman, because I personally don't find the Animated Series' version of Catwoman a very interesting character, for some reason. Andrea Beaumont and even Zatanna were more interesting characters and love interests for Batman despite having less screentime, in my opinion.
I picked "Other" in your poll, though, because I also still love the Christopher Nolan live-action trilogy, and prefer it over most of the animated Batman stuff in the 2000s.
