Yes. It is almost impossible to remove the heads w/o tearing the head gaskets. There are some MLS head gaskets that reportedly can be reused (on the same head, same side "up"), but if they tear or delaminate at disassembly I would not reuse them, or any
head gasket w/the exception of a copper gasket.
Same thing for the intake gaskets. The rest of the gaskets all are paper (except possibly the exhaust gaskets), so if they tear, replace them. I will reuse valve cover gaskets if they don't tear. The rear main and timing cover seals can be reused as long as they're not damaged somehow.
If you used the rubber rail intake seals, toss them and run a bead of RTV instead.
