Citing these papers gives the reviewer/reader of your study information about how the system works and it attributes some credit for its original creation. Academic assessment (whether for promotion or even getting appointed to a job in the first place) prioritises publications over making useful tools for others. Citations provide a way for the developers to justify their continued involvement in the development of the package.
PsychoPy® is licensed under a GPL3 license which means, essentially, that:
you can use it (and adapt it) for free in your work, and you can even release those versions
but you must include the original PsychoPy® license
AND you must also make your release open source using the same license
What that means is you’re free to use PsychoPy’s goodwill in being open source, you are required to pass on that goodwill!
