Yes, I played SC2. Relax, no need to get angry. I'm not some young whippersnapper, I played games from the 386 days. Including the original Starflight, Star Control and Tie Fighter.
I'm just saying that I, personally, prefer the scanning and mining within the rover. Not the Mario world style gameplay with minerals waiting to be picked up. But if you think SC2/Starflight mineral collection is similar to Super Mario world, that's cool. That's your opinion and entitled to it. To me, in my opinion, they are vastly different.
