Interesting. I wonder if I would have to understand nuclear physics or chemistry to be able to play these games. My education in those fields is extremely limited and only concerns watching some youtube videos and reading Wikipedia articles.

The gamey simulators shouldn't be too hard. The serious ones outside of Steam would likely have a steeper learning curve.

My guess would be you need to know a lot less about the physics and "chemistry" and much more about mechanical engineering, plumbing, and high pressure systems. In the end, almost all current nuclear plant designs are based around heating water to create steam, to turn a turbine, to turn a generator, to create electricity. Most of the issues will be mechanical issues related to valves and various pipes/plumbing (even in the "serious ones").
