Common censor targets:
* Blood & gore (most common)
* Swearing
* Sexual content (e.g. posters of scantily dressed women)

The reason for the censorship is usually overprotective parents, though the reasons could be cultural or religious as well.

The child lock feature is commonly initiated during install of the game, though some may allow setting it in in-game options menu. Commonly the latter case allows password protecting the setting.
