Why doesn't an 80's game console work on a modern high definition television?


My wife bought me a retro Nintendo game system with the Mario/Duck hunt game for Christmas. The game console appears to function, the game loads, but the gun for the duck hunt game does not register a "hit" when shooting the ducks. I tried to play this game several times without ever successfully shooting a duck. When I disconnected the console from the HD TV and hooked it up to our old 19 inch standard definition television the game worked just fine. Any thoughts as to why it would not work on the HD TV?
