I ended up getting Agent A to work, and that was pretty decent on Apple TV.

Real Racing 3 is actually surprisingly good so far, although with all the F2P nonsense I can feel a paywall coming at some point.

The Siri Remote is surprisingly bad at swiping directions. I tried Pac-Man Championship and ended up deleting it because it was almost uncontrollable. Same with Edge.

The games I have available from my iPhone/iPad haven't really wowed me yet. I tried playing Alto's Adventure and I didn't feel like the translation to a TV game was all that great. AG Drive looked nice but I really didn't enjoy it. I'm wanting to try out Duck Tales, Space Age, and Agent A. I oddly did find the Home Depot DIY app to be pretty great.

Any other must-haves?

Xenowerk is also good fun on iOS but I've not bought the tvOS version (sadly it's not a universal app.. but I can imagine it'd be great on the tv!)
yes , its weird that xenowerk tvOS version is working seperate from the ios version
i bought it because it said it have icloud support but then i realise the icloud support ONLY works between tv OS version LOL!!!!

The Siri remote sucks. You definitely need to update that if you want to get a good experience. Pony up cowboy

Its worth mentioning that any of the mfi bluetooth controllers will work with the ATV, its not just the steelseries, so shopping around you can usually pick up a cheaper controller that is still very good like the Mad Catz CTRLi

It also worth mentioning that since the original post the prices in the steel series and hori controllers has dropped and I've seen them for $35 online.
