As a tech-driven company, we're pretty keen on video games here at GetAgent. Over the holiday period we're excited to have the chance to settle down with our nostalgic favourites, as well as explore new worlds on the latest consoles.

But, how much would it cost to live with our favourite video game characters?

We had a go at valuing some iconic character's homes using current market house prices. This is what we found:

(The Legend of Zelda) - £48,350

While Zelda was a game-changer for, well gaming, its main character Link has the most modest property in the list. At around 1,000 square feet, GetAgent values Link’s remote Hyrule cabin at just £48,350.

Solid Snake

(Metal Gear Solid) - £64,940

The former Green Beret may be highly skilled in stealth and espionage but like Link, his modest and remote log cabin would command just shy of £67k in current market conditions.

Sonic

(Sonic the Hedgehog) - £134,855

The most famous of all hedgehogs has been battling evil for almost 30 years now and his tropical hillside house surrounded by green space would currently be worth a smidgen under £135k.

Mario

(Super Mario Bros) - £172,896

Mario may be one of the most iconic video game characters of all time, but he hasn’t let the fame go to his head with his home in the Mushroom Kingdom currently valued at a modest £172,896.

Ryu

(Street Fighter) - £514,003

The main protagonist in the Street Fighter series, GetAgent estimates his 1,920 square foot, Toyama home is worth just over half a million in current market conditions.

Nathan Drake

(Uncharted) - £728,160

While he might spend the majority of his time exploring and hunting for treasure, Nathan Drake’s suburban home in New Orleans is fairly boring in contrast. However, the 2,000 square foot property would command a respectable £728,160 in today’s market.

Donkey Kong

£2.136m

Villain turned good guy, Donkey Kong is now reaping the benefits of a career spanning nearly 40 years. His private island estate is currently valued upwards of £2m.

Ezio Auditore

(Assassin's Creed) - £8.446m

It’s hard to believe that Assasins Creed was first released 13 years ago and while some of the more recent titles have attracted criticism from die-hard fans, it remains a modern-day classic for many. Ezio features in three of the games when it was arguably at its best and the Florentine nobleman has also done pretty well in the property market. His 20,000 square foot Italian Renaissance residence is valued at £8.446m today.

Lara Croft

(Tomb Raider) - £20.543m

Lara Croft places top of the video game property market pile and as one of the most iconic characters of all time, she fully deserves to be there. She may have inherited Croft Manor under less than desirable circumstances, but today the 75,000 square foot property is worth in excess of £20m!
