      Shacknews, you do some weird articles these days.

      Saying that, doing the above for Elite: Dangerous would probably be great, that's the only game that's ever made me feel lost in the keybindings menu. Adding some description of what the less obvious bindings actually do could be helpful too.

        I think these kinds of “practical” articles get lots of hits as people google search for this kind of stuff

          Yeah, I get it. Just found it funny at fist then realised at those times I'd been sitting on a moon in Elite, painfully trying to find the key binding that deployed the buggy or panicking trying to find the key that turns off silent running, I'd have been able to use an article like this.

        The formlike nature of the first paragraph reminds me of FIFA/Madden commentary. GAMENAME has released its latest stellar iteration by DEVELOPERNAME. Here are the key bindings PUNYMORTAL.

        We have been doing guides for years. We just recently started generating chatty threads for them to help chatty readers discover them. It also aides our SEO.
