What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is a broad category of entertainment that can take many forms. People may find some types more entertaining than others; what delights one person might bore another. For example, children might enjoy cartoons or playgrounds, whereas adults might prefer fine art exhibitions or jazz concerts.

Creative entertainment often pushes the boundaries of what has been done before and aims to evoke complex emotions such as wonder, sadness, suspense, or contemplation. It may also challenge the intellect by presenting alternative viewpoints or by requiring problem-solving or strategic thinking. It can also be shared with others, such as a sports team or multiplayer video game.
