Organise by genre and control type?


Recommended Posts

I’m building a pc based bartop arcade for my brother. It’s not going to have an overwhelming collection of games but a good mix. It’s got 2 sets of 6 button arcade controls and 2 buttons each side on the from for coin and start. 

He says a pi running old games isn’t good enough so going to have a mix of PS2, Dreamcast, GameCube and even some Wii u. But obvously arCade Button’s can’t control most newer stuff so I’m going to use Bluetooth Xbox one controls. 

So so is it easy to have genre categories rather than platform for the main menu? He doesn’t care about platforms. 

And once into a genre like driving, is there way to filter to ones that work well with the cab controls or need a pad? Not sure if that’s even possible but if it is, I guess it’s a manual process of adding that metadata?
