Creativity!
Immagination!
People always think the best skills are being a powerhouse coder, but without the elements of creativity, then a game will be boring.

There is no coding language more 'valuable' then the other. Both are useful to know, but at the end of the day, it's you're choice what language you code you're game in.

Well I'd say the most valuable skill is organization. If you can't keep track of what works where and how then the game will just be confusing and full of bugs. And when working in teams the most important skill will be leadership. Someone that can manage what each individual is doing in order for the finished projects each department works on runs the way it should for the gamer.

alot of devs these days are required to know a vast amount of skills when they are in the game industry, for example a 3d artist will also learn some programming

This is true for just about every job on the planet these days. It all depends what you want to achieve. Are you happy being a Dump Terminal for a big company or do you want to become a Supervisor, Manager or even a CEO? Whatever your goal is in life will determine which skills you need to achieve that goal. I know this is a little of topic but I just want people to start realizing that the only thing in life that is limiting them and suppressing their dreams is themselves. Sure life is tough and everything gets more expensive by the day but these are just bricks in the road and it is up to you to decide whether this will be a stumbling block or a building block in your life.

We as developers are privileged because the world as we know it is becoming more and more digital by the day and we are the tools making that happen. Do not allow yourself to be limited by your negative thoughts and the negativity in the world, BE ALL YOU CAN BE! So the most important aspect for a Developer (Not Skill) is your Willpower.
