Entertaiment is audience-centered commercial culture that keeps people amused, engaged, and diverted. It can take many forms, from cartoons to fine art, and includes both playful activities (like a playground or concert) and more cerebral experiences like puzzles, reading, or strategic video games. People value different types of entertainment based on their moods; for example, a comedy show may elicit joy or suspense, while a documentary might inspire contemplation.
Creative entertainment frequently pushes the boundaries of what has been done before, aiming to evoke complex emotions such as wonder, fear, sadness, or excitement. This type of entertainment can be more meaningful than simple amusement, and often requires high levels of technical skill and artistic expression.
