Typically a game gun was essentially a "light pen" -- a photocell behind a small telescope. It watches for the TV's retrace to brighten the point it's focused on. The game's display hardware has to keep track of which pixel is being painted at any given time, and coordinate that with the signal from the light pen to recognize the point on screen which the gun was pointed at. This information is then passed back to the game software, along with information about whether/when the trigger was pulled, and the game decides what you hit, if anything.

But unless the game is programmed to work with the gun -- and the game machine has appropriate hardware to support it -- this can't be done.

The newer solution is to either use an accelerometer set (as in the Wii controllers) or a micro-gyroscope (as in several "space mice") to detect the gun's orientation. That doesn't work as well because it doesn't confirm that the gun is actually pointed at a specific point on the screen. You can go through calibration dialogs to make that vaguely accurate (and redo them every time you move to a different location), or just animate crosshairs on the screen and not worry about the fact that the physical gun isn't necessarily pointing the right way, but neither is much like actually shooting. It *may* be possible to retrofit something like this onto a mouse-controlled game, but it won't feel right.

Note that this is assuming that what's in the video bears any resemblance whatsoever to reality. I haven't watched more than the first few seconds, so I don't know.
