Both are great games.

The Witcher has a combat system which can take a little getting used to, it's not fun at first, but it does become so later on. When you can do several combos, etc., without mistake. It's not hard, and I never really found it tiresome. It also has a very realistic navigation system, and fantastic side quests which are a big part of the game. It doesn't have a great loot system, but it is OK. It also has a more adult dialog, especially when it comes to romantic relationships.

Dragon: Age Origins has a more hack and slash combat system which is less fun for rogues and warriors, but very fun for mages. It also has a really great weapon/armor/loot system. It has horrible mini side quests (like saving a caravan of people from Darkspawn which you encounter by going to a spot on the map after accepting the quest), but the bigger side quests which aren't the mini sort, are pretty good. It has more comedic dialog and this is also the case in some romantic relationships (like with Morrigan).

Both have great stories, although I think The Witcher's might be a little better, they're still both great.

Ultimately I don't think you should be allowed to ask this question until you've done four or five playthroughs of Dragon Age: Origins (). Joking aside, I recommend you do DA:O with a three mage setup with one rogue. It's AWESOME.
