Position requirements are just wishful thinking on the part of the employers. They want someone who's shipped AAA titles or has this degree or whatever, but at the end of the day they're going to hire the best person who applied
Maybe no one who's published is applying at this place. Maybe the ones who did are shit. Ultimately though the worst thing that can happen when you send a resume is they never get back to you. It's worth it to send the application and I know it's emotionally difficult when the ad has a laundry list of qualifications you don't have, but it's really worth it. Maybe you don't get THAT job but they like your portfolio enough to put you in at another position.
