A person who trys their nuts off. Especially when you think they are only winning only because they are putting too much effort into something.

Often declared by hypocrites during long winded tantrums while playing video games such as CoD. They call out other people when they are in fact trying too hard and still losing.

A tryhard is an excuse people use as to why they lost something, typically a game.

The person who uses the word implies that they weren't trying to win, and are calling the other person a tryhard because they WANT to win.

Amongst friends just wanting to have fun, this is a valid excuse. Though, this is mainly used by people (in games such as Modern Warfare 2) who go around playing against random people and losing.
Person 1: We're gonna beat you this game, noob.
Person 2: I doubt it.

(After the game, person 2's team wins)

Person 2: I thought you were going to win?
Person 1: Shut up. You're just a tryhard.
