Why do games have a "Press any key/start" screen?

I looked, kept looking considered 0 + 2 on the Numpad and then wondered if the U.S. keyboard layout had a different numpad setup, kept looking for an "Any" key, then read the rest of the topic

Its also nice, because its a screen that only has one action. If no action is made, it changes the picture to keep the screen busy to avoid burn in or something. Menu screens have lots of options and someone might time read stuff.

Now, I've never seen a menu that I couldn't fully navigate in 2 minutes though.

Not the exact quote, but close enough for my needs.
