A graphic content filter is a filter not only for video games, but also for websites consisting of images and videos of violence, blood shed, cruelty, language and all mature content.

It filters the above mentioned graphical contents to be viewed by the persons below the age of 18 (21 in some states). A few games to list would be Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty. Graphic content filters appear in the options menu, a parent or guardian also may lock controls so the child does not change the graphic filter settings in Call of Duty: World at War go to Options-Graphic Content Filter- and click on it. It will then say would you like to turn down graphic content (options Yes and No). Click Yes if you want to. They filter out blood, gore and profanity.

Some games such as Assassin's Creed will only remove blood and gore.

This is not to be confused with re-releases of videogames altered to remove objectionable content, for example The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time originally had red blood in it, but later versions have green blood instead.
