At the BAFTA Interactive Entertainment Awards, in which Quantic Dream won three awards for Heavy Rain, Cage stated that "games always explore the same things. They're about being powerful, being the good guys against the bad guys – that's a very tiny part of what can be done. There are so many other stories to tell, so many other emotions to trigger – this is a fantastic new medium, we can do much more than we currently do with it." Game developer Warren Spector described Cage as one of the best storytellers in the business, calling him a genius.

Cage has been critical of "game over" events in story-driven, non-action video games, calling them "a state of failure more for the game designer than from the player".

Cage was the first game developer to receive the Legion of Honour, the highest decoration granted in France.
