Entertaiment is a multifaceted concept that accommodates the varying emotional states and cognitive engagement of different individuals and groups. It stretches across different media, from high art to popular music, from family sports to multiplayer video games. The act of entertainment itself can be therapeutic, providing a form of catharsis or escapism. At the same time, it can be highly intellectual, as in the case of puzzles or documentaries.
