I used to say I liked all vampires, but Twilight changed that. I'm all up for a writer or storyteller putting a new spin on what a vampire is. If they can get a massive amount of society to agree and like their version, good for them. But that doesn't mean I have to like it. This is my list so far...
Lestat is a whiny brat, but sexy.
Louis is a whiny bitch, but he still has humanity within him.
Armand is a whore, but he still a whore.
Marius is a slut, but he's sophisticated.
Nicolas is bat-shit crazy, but he played the violin so well till he lost his hands.
Gabrielle is a wild bitch, but she's a damn strong woman going after what she wants.
Angel is king of the dust bunny vampires, but he's still a badass.
Spike is annoying as hell, but sexy.
Jeshickah is a sadist, but he can use a whip in all the right ways.
The Twins Effect (also known as The Vampire Effect):
Kazaf is a pitiful teenager, but he knows how to feed in style.
Sookie Stackhouse Novels/True Blood:
Eric is too full of himself, but who doesn't love a Viking?
Bill is a whiny bitch, but he's a big whiny bitch.
So yeah, I love vampires in almost all their incarnations. I've not done much tabletop gaming, so I can't really comment on that.
Generally, I prefer my vampires to be undead and unable to partake in sexual interactions. I want them strong and to be feared for what they are, not lusted after.
None of this:
I prefer monsters. Not whiny brats who spend eternity whining about not having love and crap. I would prefer them to throw people into walls and crush their skulls after feeding. They don't even need to seduce their victims into a dark alley. Just grab, drag, feed, and crush...though I will make small exceptions for specific people when it comes to roleplaying.
