Immortal, never age, and in some cases, hyper-intelligent VS being basically brain dead, having no recollections of the past and a slave to the virus that infects me, and I would way too easy to kill.
I like zombies more, but I would much rather be a vampire.
Like how is this a debate? Vampires are stronger, faster, and more intelligent overall. Not to mention being more attractive.
Vampires have individuality whereas zombies do not.
Vampires are immortal, have powers, and have many other advantages over humans and definitely over debilitated zombies
