You still haven't answered my question and you've shifted from "sad endings" to endings with dying protagonists, while also refusing to acknowledge an ending with a dying protagonist (Arthur). You aren't interested in any honest conversation and aren't worth engaging with any further.
Ok yes yes, I was being slightly facetious in not acknowledging the fact that Arthur is the protagonist and he dies in RDR2, naughty Skadi, and to answer your question no sad endings are not automatically good.
Now if you will do me the same courtesy would you answer why the endings to RDR2 and TLOU us are so good and while I am assuming you have an issue with the ending of Cyberpunk 2077 could you tell me what they do better than Cyberpunk 2077?

Quite frankly this post is just to taunt people. Has nothing constructive in it. Has no purpose other than let the OP gloat over how she has a "better understanding" about story telling.
Because you can only write a Disney story or a tragedy. No inbetweens? No compromise. No creativity?
Yeah I know the poll is a little binary and there is no room for nuance, but polls with a grey area usually don't really reveal interesting results. Consider the poll as what you prefer if you prefer an ending to lean happy or sad.
