Entertaiment is a broad category that encompasses a wide variety of art forms and activities designed to elicit an emotional response from the audience. From a soothing melody to the climactic conclusion of a compelling story, entertainment can provide escapism from stress and depression, a cathartic experience, or simply offer joy and relaxation. At its best, creative entertainment offers a new experience or perspective that challenges the intellect and provokes thought. From the complex emotions invoked in a work of fiction to a video game that demands strategic thinking, high-quality production and artistic skill are often expected.
