I think it's a mistake to compare "shooters" with "Westerns". "Western" is a sub genre of other genres. Like "Western action" or "Western drama". A better comparison might be "Action films". Shooters are common because guns have been the primary weapon of choice for hundred of years and most violent action involves guns. While the Western has decline in popularity, action films have not. Video games are also different from film and television in that they require the audience to interact constantly. This typically means some kind of action, and when the action is violent it's natural for it to involve a gun.
