The Witcher or Dragon Age: Origins - Page 2

post #11 of 31
Both good games..... I've never played the first Witcher, so I'd personally say DA:O.
post #12 of 31
Didn't like the Witcher's story or characters very much, seemed much too.. cliche. Though if you haven't played W2 I recommend you do so instead of just replaying DA.

Thank you very much for your equally as useful post.
I didn't mean for my first post to be conceited or anything. DA:O is an abbreviation for Dragon Age: Origins. I will edit the post to be more clear, I'm sorry for the confusion, and lack of information.

Thanks to those that have responded so far!

With Dragon Age: Origins, You have several origin quests, and the rest of the game is exactly the same. (I only did one complete playthrough.) The story is decent, but the setting is terribly unoriginal. I wouldn't bother playing it again, unless you really want to try out the DLC.

With the Witcher, you may be discouraged at first, but the game eventually gets better, and a fair bit better than DA. Although the setting is from a series of books, it still feels much more original. You should definitely try out this game, if not just so you can play the second one.

I'm working on a play through of TW1 currently. If you've done a play through of DAO, I'd go with TW1. TW1 combat system and early game bugs me, but it's solid RPG. This more geared towards if you are looking into playing the sequels.

I buy everything I play, but will do "extended demos" of games with mixed reviews. DAO2 was a quick uninstall. I'm looking forward to TW2.

I buy everything, but I don't necessarily play them. :\\

I have plenty of games with 10-15 minutes on them, just due to sheer boredom in the beginning.

Thanks for your contribution! Saying as TW1 was one of the games that only has 18 minutes played, I may give it a shot, hoping to warm up to it as the game progresses.

TW1=The Witcher Enhanced Edition?

Unless you mean Two Worlds 1. That was a terrible, terrible game.

Yeah, the former. I only used the acronym, because TW1/2 seems to refer to the Witcher series online after the sequel. It took me a second to clue in as to what the TW2 was when it came out.
