The entire joke is that in WarGames, the main character accidentally connects with a government supercomputer that controls all the U.S. military arsenal. The computer asks him “Shall we play a game?” and what the guy thinks is a game is the computer trying to start WWIII between the United States and Russia.
In this scene, Steve and Natasha are accessing a hidden supercomputer with a mysterious flashdrive seemingly controlled by an AI. Natasha references WarGames and the potential of accidentally starting a war by accessing the computer.
That’s it, guys. That’s the joke. It’s a really funny joke. Whereas a Saw reference would literally make zero sense in this scene.
