My brother is getting a new computer that is an absolute beast in the hardware department! Seriously the thing could probably run Crysis without a hiccup!
Now the only problem is that he wants an RPG that is extremely pretty, extremely recent, and is not Oblivion. He really doesn't want to get this game because of the things he's heard about the leveling system. He wants to get a newer RPG so any suggestions of golden oldies like Fallout or Deus Ex are out. I'm really not all that familiar with western RPGs much less ones that have appeared recently. Could anyone come up with any suggestions?
Also any referrals to any other upcoming, awesome, pushing-hardware-to-the-limit games would be appreciated.
EDIT: Forgot to add, no MMORPGs. The only one my brother's playing is World of Warcraft and he has next to no desire to spend hours and money on another one.
