What are some really good RPGs for the 360?

I know my parents are getting my lil brother a 360 for xmas, I''d like to get him a game or two. He loves RPGs and I curious as to what are some good ones for the 360?

I know he owns FF 13 on PS3, so I'm pretty much open to any recommendations other than that. I also know he prefers old school (the turn based battles) as opposed to the newer free roaming type games. But he will still play pretty much anything. I don't even know if they still make old school type RPGs. I've been out of the loop for awhile now.

dragon's dogma was great combat, good story with some lulls in middle

kingdom's of amalur- to me was kinda forgettable but worth it if you can get it cheap

fallout 3- open world roaming which I also tend not to like, but I enjoyed this game

also deus ex: hr is a great stealth game that i consider rpg though technically its not

These people are meat virgins. They'll be taken by the grill and delicately and tenderly be shown the ways of flavorful meat love. The first time is beautiful.

The witcher 2 and all those listed above would be a good pick

Tales of vesperia is a good game. It seems that he wants jrpgs which are on the ps3 and not the xbox though
