Right now I have #Catan and #Ticket To Ride on my wish list for gateway games, any others you recommend?

Who do you typically play with? By gateway games, if you're looking for games that are very easy to introduce to non-gamers, then here are some that come to mind:
Here are some games that I consider a slight step-up in terms of complexity, but still very approachable:

Woah! I didn't expect so many games! I'll definitely look into these! Thanks for all the suggestions, and as for I usually play with, it's mostly my family.

I don't know who you are playing with, nor do I know your tastes. So, don't take my recomendations too seriously. But, some that I have enjoyed, in addition to what you posted, include:
I am not a huge coop fan, but many people are, and if that includes you you could add #Pandemic / #Forbidden Island / #Forbidden Desert
Many people really enjoy #7 Wonders. I myself enjoyed the #Sushi Go Party! quite a bit more fore a drafting game. I here a more modern drafting game t hat beats both of those is #It's a Wonderful World.
I think #Dominion: Second Edition is a the closest thing you can get to a collection essential.
Thank you for the recommendations! (Also I usually find myself playing with my family.)

I'll second #7 Wonders as it was my gateway game, and a game I still really like and will happily play any time. #Sushi Go Party! I also enjoy (I own them both), but it doesn't scratch the same strategic itch that 7 Wonders does for me.
To add to the co-op list you provided, I'd also suggest #Horrified. To me it has a more fun and engaging theme than the others, and it's very pretty, and relatively affordable (~$30 I think).
Thanks for the info!
