As someone who knows a lot of theory, this is an excellent explanation! One piece of advice I would like to add is to keep your melodic ideas simple. Look at some of Nobuo Uematsu's work on Final Fantasy VI; Terra's theme is based around a simple two-note walk up at the end of each bar of music. He takes this super-simple idea and messes around with it in a number of ways, then takes one of the variations and does variations on that. Or think of Beethoven's 5th, where a good chunk of the piece is based around THE EXACT SAME FOUR-BEAT PATTERN REPEATED OVER AND OVER. It's amazing, and a good way to develop a catchy harmony that will stick with the player long after they shut off the game. It also helps as a stepping-stone toward learning how to create more complex melodic ideas; once you've mastered the basic and the simple, the advanced stuff follows naturally.

Pft... people think the moon landing is fake. Nonsense. The moon doesnt even exist in the first place, it's just the reflection of the earth on the surface of space.
