He might be a little young for D&D, not necessarily for the content but for the gaming groups. Most of the players are significantly older than he is. Might want to look into the D&D skirmish game, relatively fast-playing and average age will be MUCH closer to his.

Are those games any good? I have seen them (there are 3 or 4 different ones right?) but not gotten an opportunity to play. My son and I used to play Heroscape which I think is similiar.
There's a number of different games, everything from D&D, to BattleTech, to Star Wars (the stats on the AT-AT make it pretty useless, but the "mini" is pretty). D&D figures are also popular for role playing GMs and players to keep track of characters in combat.
Heroes of Might and Magic III
With a slight risk he might become obsessed with the game.
This game never gets old.
