You have to understand that this list was a conglomerate of like 3-4 different opinions. Compromises are made and discussion is had to narrow things down. Eventually what happens is you just settle on games everyone agrees with, even if personally we don't all feel the same way. It's not so much a case of what is the "best" game as it is "what will everyone settle on."

That said I do think Kingdoms of Amalur was pretty good for a big mainstream RPG. Yeah, it had way too much filler, but I thought it had a solid character system (better than Skyrim etc.), combat was fun and dynamic, the story was solid (if overlong), and the world had some cool-looking locations to explore. Second best RPG of the year? Hard to say, but it was definitely a game that did a lot right, so I can see why it ended up on the short list regardless.
