I think psychology is used in games all the time.  From action genres to thrillers.  All sorts of tricks are used to jump start the player's imagination and entice them into playing longer.  Rewards, Colorful pictures, engrossing stories and everything under the sun really.  Unless you're looking for something more specific, like... I don't know what?
