It depends what systems and also if he likes playing multiplayer games or not.
If he's more of the longer/cane_shaker like me, I would say Skyrim and or
Fallout:New Vegas Ultimate Edition. Both games will keep him busy for hundreds of hours.
Edit: Just realized it was a PS3 system. Far Cry 3 comes out today and has been getting great reviews.
ALso Borderlands 2
