I like On Base Percentage better than Average or Hits.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
Average is more fun because it varies so much, but people like to act sophisticated and use OBP. It can be argued that it's better because it's easier to predict, but, whatever you like. Hits probably isn't the greatest category.
