Scores on Gaming Reviews: What Are The Benefits?

This isn't a fitting day for this at all.I don't think I am the only person here who could easily make a case as for why numbering systems for reviews jeopardize the quality of the writing, the game being reviewed about, basic fundamentals about mathematics, and so much more... and yet I feel like, by doing so, I'd be either preaching to the choir or a brick wall. So, here's my question: What are the positive aspects to dwindling a review to a single number, only with respect to give a better understanding of the game (aka no views increase)?
