For me, it's mainly an issue with lesser-used peripheral keys which aren't immediately adjacent to WASD.
Same sentiment here. I can type [words*] all day long without looking at my keyboard. But when I game, I have to pull my keyboard tray out so I can see it. I don't game a lot anymore, and I wouldn't say I look at my keyboard while gaming much, but I wonder how many people don't realize they take a peek every now and again. It's hard to consciously notice until your keyboard is absolutely obstructed from view (like my keyboard tray pushed in under my desk).
