Print them out and put your fingers on then to test how it sort of feels to you

This. Print a few full to-scale versions and try 'em out.

I feel like 8 buttons would be too much. But I didn't play much arcade yet still setting it up. Are there a lot of games with 8 buttons? I would think 6

You can get away with 6 but 8 is best as the more modern consoles use 8 buttons, I use 8 and when I configure them I start from the left (closest to the joysticks) then if it only uses 4 buttons in the emulator then the ones left don't do anything, if its only 2 then theres 6 blanks an so on.... So really there is no point in not having 8 buttons

Yeah. If you want to play newer consoles and PC games 6 gives you a lot more to work with.

If you're just sticking to older consoles and MAME then 6 is fine... until you decide to add something newer and could use the extra buttons.

A lot of people compromise with 7 buttons instead.
