Just Another Über Fun Day in Call o' Dutyville

I remember back in the day (the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's) when we worried about our children merely being witness to nearly 11,000 violent crimes on the television by the age they turned 12. Every one worried about this regardless of their politics. Lot's of studies showing the negative effects this practice had and has on our children. 
I wonder what happened to all that concern? Is it all better now that kids can get busy virtually shooting a person in the head rather than just watch it happen?  

And yet now, here we are funneling tremendously intense, horribly graphic violence to our children on a daily basis which requires their not just observing this trash but, god help us, participating in it.

Please, somebody help me understand why I'm supposed to feel good about a Forbes Magazine study that says it's nothing to worry about.
