Entertaiment evokes a range of emotions and is an essential part of our human experience. It provides escapism, joy, and even catharsis. It can be as simple as reading a book or playing a video game, or it can be more complex such as a fine art exhibition or a sophisticated drama. It can also be educational, thought-provoking, and cerebral—like a documentary or a puzzle. It is also often social, whether a team sport or a multiplayer video game.
