question on gpio and other USB options for arcade controlers:

I am ready to do some wireing and wanta build the joystick arcade button pannel. Im seeing a couple of soultions. the GPIO option and other using a USB converter board like Xin-Mo and a couple others out there. i wanta build a 2 player board, I read the xin-mo has problems with two player board.

any advice or pro cons for GPIO and a usb set up? Ive build a mame controler many years ago outa an old programable game pad and the joy/buttons… so not hard . Id rather have a set up that uses keyboard commands as I think it would be easier to re-key in retropie….

as always, thanks again for any responses…
