In a scene that sounds straight out of a video game, police officers and a helicopter descended on a Washington home Thursday, after receiving a 911 call that the family inside was being held hostage.

According to Komo News:

"The caller said he had an assault rifle and he had placed explosives in the yard and he was holding a family hostage," said Nathan Elledge, chief of police at the Sammamish Police Department. "He wanted $20,000 to release the family."

It turns out that the call was actually made by a computer, and the owner of the home is a top exec at Bungie, the game developer behind "Halo" and the recent hit "Destiny."

And on top of all that, investigators think the suspect "has ties to the video game community."

The Internet Archive, a non-profit working to build a library of the Internet, has added over 900 originally coin-operated arcade games to its site this week, all playable in your browser without any additional downloads.

"A lot of people are going to migrate to games they recognize and ones that they may not have played in years. They'll do a few rounds, probably get their asses kicked, smile, and go back to their news sites," writes Jason Scott the man who put this all together, effectively destroying workplace productivity across the country.

You may remember last year's "Console Living Room" section of the Internet Archive, which included games from Atari and Sega.
