My first thought was Hedonist. Oxford (linked on the word) gives the definition as “A person who believes that the pursuit of pleasure is the most important thing in life; a pleasure-seeker”, which doesn’t include the implications of ignoring or neglecting things beyond pleasure, but is nevertheless generally perceived as negative.
