Amazing game, for sure. But I think I'd have to go with Witcher 2 or Skyrim, mostly because they're at least just as good, but appeal to a much wider audience.

I would say Dark Souls, along with Demons Souls are the best RPGs of this generation, though it all depends on what you like. While these games focus on gameplay (remember when good gameplay actually mattered?), some of your more mass market RPGs use story based choices and a bunch of filler stuff (that's not necessarily fun) to smokescreen mediocre gameplay/combat. IMO, all of the freedom and extracurricular activities in the world are pointless, without good gameplay to back them up. I am currently playing through the Witcher 2 on Xbox and so far, it's fantastic; very good combat system to back up the rest of the goods. Obviously I can't judge it as a whole yet, until I finish it.

Tales of Vesperia.

Though I played The Witcher 2 on PC, I think the 360 version is supposed to work pretty flawlessly, so that should be in the discussion as well.

Witcher 2 plays extremely well on Xbox, but with one exception. The use of the medallion is mapped to the left analog stick (you press it in). This results in Geralt stopping to use the medallion occasionally (or frequently) in the heat of combat; which can obviously get you killed quickly on the higher difficulty settings. That is my only gripe with it so far, and you can't remap any of the button configuration to fix this problem (to my knowledge). Otherwise, I am loving this game, and the 1st major boss encounter was pretty epic.

I rather enjoyed Eternal Sonata.

JRPG wise Lost Odyssey just ahead of Eternal Sonata... providing you can get past the first town where the pace is just soooooooo slooooow.

Don't know why, but I like Two Worlds II the most. Dark Souls is pretty damn good, too.

Dark souls is really good, but not the best.

Dark Souls is my personal favourite as well.

It's true, though anyone who hasn't played Demon's Souls and only Dark Souls is really missing out on the only competition Dark Souls has which is Demon's Souls, the inspiration for Dark Souls.

I have both and I do consider Dark Souls superior, though Demons Souls was pretty good.
