Adjustable censorship or optional censorship is the possibility, in video-games mostly, to turn mature (i.e., sexually explicit or violent) content on or off.. This can be achieved through toggles or cheat codes (such as with the first Mortal Kombat) and aims at making the content more family-friendly. Very often, this is done by reducingthe amount of blood (from gore to no blood at all), changing its color, or even totally replacing blood by something else.
Noteworthy, this form of censorship is also adopted with other media. Some DVD releases include the option to switch off the bad language (e.g., Family Guy). Some movies also used color alteration to dampen the violence of some scene: in Kill Bill: Volume 1,Quentin Tarantino was forced to censor some scene and chose to do it with black and white
