Basically someone who likes the video game for the graphics, not the gameplay. Usually refuses to play older games on any console besides Newer-generation consoles.
Johnny: Hey, George, do you wanna play some Grand Theft Auto: Vice city?
George: No way! Those graphics suck ass, Grand theft auto 4's are better!
Johnny: Yeah but, Vice city kicks 4's ass.
George: YES BUT THE GRAPHICS ARE BETTER
Johnny: ...Graphics whore...
One who, in video games, values graphics above all and ignores all other aspects of the game. Also known for rejecting unrealistic graphic types such as cel-shading.
Stupid people, basically.
I can't play my SNES because the graphics suck too much.
The shame of gaming, the worst kind of gamer, and one that gives other gamers a bad name by hating on a game because the graphics aren't realistic enough for them, when instead, they should be looking for smooth controls, varied moves/abilities, smooth gameplay with few bugs, and above all, fun.
Graphics Whore: I'm going to play my 360 and PS3 because I am awesome.
Me: Well, have fun. I'm going to play SNES, N64, Genesis, and NES.
Graphics Whore: You still play that outdated shit? Man, that shit is stupid and the graphics suck balls!
Me: You know what? Why don't you go fuck yourself with a rusty chainsaw?
In terms of the marketing crap that is called "the console wars" or the "next generation wars" in video game consoles, it is someone that puts down, denies, refutes, and ignores a system solely if the console does not have the graphic and processing power as the other competition.
