I'm creating a game, and I would like to know what research I can consult to make it more "addicting".

I've modified your title to ask about what you are actually after. Seeking the "best" addiction studies is not really answerable and is too broad. – Chuck Sherrington May 24 '14 at 15:43

I think it's an interesting question, I know there's been a lot of work done on it, I just don't have any references handy. – Chuck Sherrington May 24 '14 at 15:46
