The Witcher or Dragon Age: Origins - Page 3

post #21 of 31
I much prefer The Witcher series to Dragon Age. The Witcher 1 is still a great looking game, but The Witcher 2 is so unbelievably gorgeous that it blows its predecessor out of the water. Dragon Age's graphics make my eyes bleed, but a lot of people love it so idk. They're both AAA titles so take your pick?

To bring graphics into the argument as a reason you can't play a game... sigh.

To those that do enjoy The Witcher, can I ask what you think of the combat system? This is by far the most annoying mechanic of the game... the story seems to be somewhat compelling, but I struggle to boot up the game after trying out the combat system. I got through the first part of the game (right after you take back the keep from the mage/bandits), and I don't know whether or not I should continue.

I assume combat doesn't get much more involved outside of watching for the curse to start flaming, and then click again...

The combat in Witcher 1 sucks compared to DA:O.* That said TW1 gets much better after the first chapter. I like the Witcher for it's story and your affect on it.

*DA:O can be a helluva pausefest at times, however.

Does the combat in The Wither change at all over the course of the game? Does it become more involved than a weird point n' click?

Who said anything about "can't?" You need to work on your reading comprehension. I said that the Witcher has better graphics. Didn't say anything about A REASON YOU CAN'T PLAY THE GAME. /facepalm.

Well, I asked for people to make a case for each game. Your entire post revolved around graphics, and that DA:O made your eyes bleed. Maybe my reading comprehension isn't up to snuff, but seriously, that is what I gathered from your post.

Basically: That your post was useless, in regard to the context of this thread.

I didn't ask for people to recommend me demos, I asked for a comparison, or a specific take on a single game.
Excuse me for trying to help.

Sorry, didn't mean for it to be so over the top... Was also trying to clear up the issue for further readers, if anyone else had a similar thought, and as to why demos were out of the question.

First of all, "Dragon Age's graphics make my eyes bleed" is not only not my entire post, it's not even one sentence of my post. It's one clause of one sentence of my post. Second of all, you see what came right after that statement? Hint: it's a concession that my personal opinion may not be indicative of the majority view. So there's really no "maybe" about it, is there?
