When you want to get a certain node you can use both () and <>, I can’t understand what’s the difference, I looked for an answer but couldn’t find anything.

var playerStats = (PlayerStats)GetNode("/root/PlayerStats");
var playerStats = GetNode<PlayerStats>("/root/PlayerStats");

Both of those work, but which one I should use?
