    Obvious recommendation would be Skyrim. Works alright now patched up.

    Dragon Age maybe...it's very good and very story driven, but it sounds like you might be more into jrpg's.

    Skyrim is about as exploration heavy as it's possible to get, but it's also got a lot of combat. It can be played in first or third person. It's not that story focussed and as with Dragon Age it's very good but it's western, not japanese, jrpg's (like ni no kuni) are almost an entirely different genre.

    Buy a PS2 Slim. There just weren't enough games of that type released this generation to even be able to choose, so you have to settle for rubbish like Eternal Sonata, Tales of Graces F and Enchanted Arms.

    If you simply must have PS3 games take a look at the Atelier games, Atelier Meruru and Totori have something like the style you are looking for, Atelier Ayesha should be out this year also.

    Nier is definitely worth a look if you don't mind an action RPG, Resonance of Fate and Folklore are worth finding out more about to see if they appeal to you.

    Otherwise, pickings are slim unless you're looking for turn based strategy games, Disgaea and Valkyria Chronicles for instance.

    Is Skyrim heavy on combat and less emphasis on exploration? Also, it's first person?
    You can switch between first and third person. Split is about 50/50 although you can spend hours exploring, picking flowers or taking in the lore without fighting much at all. But there's enough options fighting battles in lots of different styles i.e. it's not a hack'n slash.

    Edit: too slow typing on tablet:-)

    Don't buy Skyrim for the PS3.

    Skyrim IS exploration.

    Dragon's Dogma is another one with a lot of exploration. But not much story, and though it's made by a Japanese developer it has more in common with western RPG's.

    Maybe it's different for saves created before the recent patch, but I've been playing Skyrim on the PS3 lately and it seems just fine to me. The framerate chugs a little at times in the overworld, but it seems to maintain a solid 30fps inside cities, buildings and dungeons. I'm sure it's still objectively the worst version of the game, but it's perfectly playable (if you're starting on it now at least).

    In any case if a PS3 is all he's got and he's interested in Skyrim then the PS3 version is surely better than not getting it at all.

    @EuroStalker I hope you enjoy Dragon's Dogma as much as I did on PS3. Loved it. Take a look at the thread on here for loads of good advice.

    Now moved on to Dark Souls PTD for PS3. A much harder game. Slow progress but fun all the same.

    Dragon's Dogma is awesome. Tons of exploration to be done, although it's very heavy on the combat too. Most encounters can be run from if you're so inclined though. Although now you're better waiting on the Dark Arisen expansion due at the end of April.

    Have you also considered the White Knight Chronicles games? From the same developer as Ni No Kuni, and I believe they share a lot of the same DNA.

    Get FFVI from PSN.

    Or borrow a Wii and get Xenoblade Chronicles.

    White Knight Chronicles got royally shafted in the reviews.

    I think you should read Cappy's advice above. His post is pretty comprehensive.

    Valkyria Chronicles is the best PS3 game of the generation in my opinion. It is very Japanese but is a strategy JRPG not an adventure JRPG. (It is a spiritual sequel to one of the all time greatest adventure JRPGs though: Skies of Arcadia).

    Nooooooo. The PS1 port of FFVI is awful to begin with, so I can't imagine how terrible a bordered, even slower PAL version must be.
