Opinion I feel like outros are inappropriate for videos of games with heavy content.

    I'm talking about games like ImmorTall, and a game I played recently called "You Left Me". Every time I play one of those sort of tear-jerky, depressing, heavy, make-me-think-a-lot-about-life types of games, I tend to just end the video immediately after the "Goodbye" when I edit them later.

    I don't know if anyone else does this, but while I could simply make some sad music and a background for my outro, I feel like it's completely inappropriate to add an outro at all. I feel like it would ruin the moment in which I feel the most emotional in a video, which is usually at the end of these videos. And I feel like it's somewhat disrespectful, especially to those whose games are based on their real life, or just generally have a heavy topic, whether it's based on real life or not.

    So yeah, that's just how I feel, personally.

    Really interesting thought honestly.

    We've all been there, watching a rather emotional video just to get our ears blasted out by Royalty Free Music. I think you could just go for a few seconds of a black screen after a longer (2-ish seconds maybe?) fade without any music and put end cards over it. That would keep the immersion through the fade and not overload people's eyes maybe.

    Outros and Intros are generally not recommended at all, especially since people are more interested in the videos/content themselves.

    Endcards are vital, though.

    Yeah probably a good idea to not have one if you feel it takes away from the end of the video.
