Looking for a short story where a group of humans are stuck in a game like simulation, they break out of the simulation only to find that they were in hibernation and playing the game to pass time.

However the plot twist is that they're actually astronauts who were kidnapped by aliens, and the reason why their simulation is so game like is because the aliens made it based on the video games the astronauts played.

Thanks in advance
