Just bought an Xbone S. Kind of lost…

So I'm a long time gamer, and have enjoyed a mix of consoles and PC (Atari, NES, SNES, PlayStation, 64, PS2, 360, Wii, currently rocking an RX 580 and I've got a Switch). I mostly play sports simulations, turn based strategy, and open world RPGs and sandbox games. I play Smash and Mariokart with my kids.

I bought the new Xbox because I didn't want to wait for RDR2. Playing it now and it's great. But this machine is very capable (despite the slow loading times) and I want to maximize it.

What Xbox exclusives should I try? What have I missed since I sold my 360 5 years ago? (After the death of NCAA football is lost a lot of value for me).

I've been playing Skyrim, Total War, Civilization, Fallout, and Minecraft for 5 years. I feel like everything else has passed me by. I'm definitely getting Madden (but that's going to be available for PC) and maybe an NBA game (2k is still the best, right?)

I'm just jumping back into a console after 5 years and I haven't kept up with console gaming. I've never even tried a battle royale game.

What should I look into?
