I really don't see how the Witcher is low fantasy, but I'll reserve my judgement as I haven't played it. If it does not involve the real world we live in, in even the most distant of ways, it cannot qualify for Low Fantasy.

Dragon Age as far as I know, it set in a world quite distinct from our own and is automatically booted out of the Low Fantasy camp and into High Fantasy. And as it has dark themes, it qualifies as Dark Fantasy.
