Goto these days is a stenography tool... it's designed to make the code harder to read.
"GOTO" existed before subroutines and functions were added, and it was back in the days of line numbers. This was the point where the main menu part of a program had to jump over to the appropriate part of the program, now we just call the appropriate routine.
