When aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth in the form of the video games.
The headline of the Conspiracy newspaper article on the wall in Ludlow's basement says "We froze Walt Disney" Josh Gad voiced Olaf in Frozen (2013).
Don't tell anybody I killed a Smurf.
In all of the video game battles, the alien attackers play the in-game opponents, while the gamers play the "player" role that they would have in the actual arcade game, exception for Pac-Man. For Pac-Man, the gamers play the ghosts, which never happened in the arcade game. Furthermore, despite having no advance warning, the gamers are not only specifically prepared to play Pac-Man, they have four customized Mini Coopers ready to go, complete with "cheat codes" for the ghosts.
The opening titles look like they show a triple reflection off a monitor screen and protective glass, typical on an arcade game.
