By graphical applications, I presume you're talking about GTK-based ones specifically.

You're looking for ~/.config/gtk-2.0/gtkfilechooser.ini:
Code:
[Filechooser Settings]
[...]
ShowHidden=true
Of course don't edit the file using a GTK-based editor. Use something like vi with all GTK applications closed.
