I'm assuming gore as in graphic violence.

Gore can sometimes be used well, it can add to a story, an example is when a character keeps fighting on despite his having his/her guts dangling. Or when it helps establish the personality of the villain (example: Dr. Steinman in Bioshock).

One of the best ways to use gore is to pull the audience out of the utopia, in an story where everything was peaceful and idyllic a moment of intense violence can serve to show what the world really is made of (The first policeman that you kill in Bioshock Infinite is a superb example)

Weird, both my examples come from Bioshock games.

The only Gore I like is the kind that got the popular vote, but lost in the electoral college. The other kind is... annoying. Yeah, we know the person died, you're just making everyone sick with the rest of it.*le mumbles about how zombie movies are destroying the world with their disgustingness*

I think sometimes the world just needs a little Gore. Otherwise our sustainability would be worse off than it is now and horror movies would not have the same impact on our fears if no one got chopped up into little bits.

Does this mean Al Gore the environmentalist; or gore as in gory deaths, bloody dismemberment, and being speared by the horn if an ox?
One answer or the other could change my opinion on this topic.
