In spite of the fact that the matrix ring $\mathbb{C}^{n \times n}$ is not a field, is it still possible to talk about it being 'algebraically closed' in the sense that $\forall f \in \mathbb{C}^{n \times n}[x]$ does $\exists A \in \mathbb{C}^{n \times n}$ such that $f(A) = 0$? If so, then is it 'algebraically closed'?

Are there any other non-field sets that this idea can be extended to?
