I would say that the most important thing is writing in a clean and consistent style. Take some time to learn about naming conventions, indenting, and commenting. The biggest source of programming errors is bad and inconsistent coding style. Nothing worse than trying to solve a bug when your code is syntactic mess. Each language has its particular style so look up the language you plan to learn and study how others layout their code.

This is the most important attribute of good coder, there is as much room for individual expression in programming languages as in natural human languages. Clean, readable, consistent, style first. Mastering logic and problem solving second.

Since it sounds like you're new to programming, the pinned threads are probably a good starting point. I would also advocate learning how to program well before jumping into a major game development project. No matter how smart you are, the first project you crank out will be a mess and frustrating. This is true for everyone, and we've all been there! Make sure to bite off something you can chew, as well.
