Because vampires suck.

Vampires are sexy. Immortals... well... they aren't. Typically. :P

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

How are you immortal? Is it like the nutters who think they are psychic?

Vampires are immortal unless you drive a steak through their heart and they can share their immortality with you.  Immortals are selfish and won't share.

Well, I'm not actually immortal. :lol:
It's a long running joke among few here that I'm some sort of reptilian being.

I play along with it because it lightens the place up.

Vampires are more popular because they have more folklore/ myths to work with. I mean think about it legends about vampires go back thousands of years,  and that gives writers and directors more to work with. Immortals on the other hand.. with the possible exception of the China's whole Taoist immortal thing, has almost nothing to work with. Furthermore vampires, sense the the creation of Dracula have been associated with sexuality, so that creates more interest as well. The only immortal character that I can think of who kinda tapped into that vibe was the dude from highlander. Besides, vampires are almost always immortal anyway so it allows you to explore the same themes as with a base line immortal with added elements
