I know I'm not really up on games at my age but the civilization series didn't even make the top fifty? Was this list based on sales or one mans'
opinion?

Sid Meier's Civilization V was originally in my list of honorable mentions, that just missed the cut. It was my in top 55 games, and no doubt it's a brilliant 4X game. It scored a solid 85/100 when I was rating the games sequentially, however all the top 50 ones scored 86 and above in my list. 

Below are some of the games that just missed the cut, not because they are not great, but I had a hard time choosing the games, as too many of them were good, like really good. 

Sid Meier's Civilization V
Cuphead
DUSK
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
Kerbal Space Program
Tomb Raider
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
Hotline Miami
The Talos Principle
Tales from the Borderlands: A Telltale Game Series
Dust: An Elysian Tail
Papers, Please
DOOM
NieR: Automata
Terraria
To the Moon
