It’s not black and white, and that’s the most important thing. And we look better. I mean, sorry, seriously–I love Bethesda, BioWare games, I play them. But, c’mon. You cannot be indifferent to that, you cannot omit the difference. We simply look better.â€
Oh come ON!

It's not even a contest

^^ Exactly. Bioware's biggest graphical distinction is their juvenile blood fetish. DA2 honestly looks awful to me.

If a game has a great story and plays well, who gives a damn which one "looks prettier"?

i think it also needs to be compared, the animations and art direction. The witcher does not have super exaggerated combat animations with grotesquely oversized weapons and armor. Even though geralt is genetically engineered.

DA 2 has gone with a jrpg look with oversized weapons, insanely exaggerated weapon attacks and moves, and armor that is generally stupid looking. I think the lead designer believes that the more spikes on something the cooler and tougher it becomes. I call it the spike theory.

If a weapon/armor/bad guy has 1 spike and another has 2. The one with 2 spikes will always be tougher. Unless said 1 spike guy spike is atleast 4 times the size of the the 2 spike guys spikes combined. You have to combine the spikes though, as spikes will be located on weapons, armor, and possibly the character itself. Add them all together.

i want the one that looks prettier, and has the better story, and plays better. Little doubt which one that is in this case though.

The Witcher in its final release was a pretty decent game, I am hoping for good things from 2. That being said ill play both Dragon Age and the Witcher 2 so it doesn't matter to me if one looks better or not...
