What is the difference between a bug and a glitch? Post your replies here is mine.

Glitch: Something that is exploitable in the game that benifits the player

Bug: Something within the game that hinders the player

Glitches are used and loved while bugs are complained about haha

It's actually the same thing.
Programmers always use the word bug and don't use glitch at all.

I know it the same thing im just pointing out that "PLAYERS" use glitch to describe something that helps them and "PLAYERS" use bug to describe something that hurts their play

I tend to use glitch when it's the user's fault - some dumb piece of software, a problem caused by overheating, whatever. Something that the program can be working flawlessly for and it still messes up, and there's nothing the programmers can do to fix it.

A bug on the other hand is the fault of the programmers.
