Console Games in the Arcade Cabinet?

So how does everyone handle emulation of your console games in the cabinet. I see videos of folks with 6TB+ images with every generation of console listed. A single stick and 6 buttons doesn’t work for home games past what the Sega genesis?
I’m building out plans for a cabinet build with a buddy and it clicked I don’t have enough buttons and the games are made to use a controller... so what am I doing...
@sheldonmenez connect full size controllers to play those consoles.
@sheldonmenez When building a cabinet, i wouldn't recommend relying only on builtin controls, the other common issues you might encounter :
- no analog controls
- weird layout for specific games (good luck playing mario kart or f-zero without triggers)
- not enough controls for games that support 3+ players
- a friend came playing and he prefers gamepad
So yeah, you should definitely make plans for external controllers.
