Hi, Im building a wooden table top arcade machine and saw that some people use heatsinks on the Pi and some don't.
Is this just personal preference?

It generally is personal preference. However when putting load on the Pi, it will get fairly warm, so having a heat sink helps keep it cool and reduce the damaging effects of heat.
