- My understanding is that most (all?) modern games are glorified access keys. Install from the disc, and then insert the disc only so that the system knows to proceed with playing the game from the HD/SSD.

That said, if I was a gamer, I'd take a peek at the packaging and make a note to confirm where they're being printed. Who knows, maybe all the discs are pressed in Europe these days!
All my third and first party American PlayStation 2, PS3 and PS4 games I just checked were printed in U.S.A. I couldn't find where the country is located on Gamecube games and got bored. Most North American Blu-rays are printed in Mexico.

Everything on a video game disc can't be redundant. If the quality control was as bad, I would have heard gamers complain about not being able to install new games. I would have heard them complain about visible scratches and smudges somewhere in all these years.
