The main 2 techniques used for games are 'shadow mapping' and 'stencil shadow'.
Google will through up months of reading - there's little point in repeating it here.

Once you have an understand of some of the techniques then for sure ask some questions to clarify - but to repeat it here would never be of the same quality as web pages dedicated to the subject.
If it's not annoying then it's not Microsoft.
