if you want to follow the story line Liminality and Infection are the first part, followed by sign.

.hack//sign is the best place to start off. It was intended as a lead-in to the first set of games from the start, and its events are set just before those of the first game.
It should be followed up with the 4 games (infection, mutation, outbreak, and quarantine, in that order).
The Liminality OVAs are intended as compendiums to the games, with each episode detailing offline investigations about the events occuring online in the games. In fact, each of the games was released with a separate DVD containing the corresponding liminality episode.
Gift is a parody that is actually on the 4th liminality disc, which is a good indication of when to watch.
Legend of the Twilight Bracelet is a mostly standalone story, and is the only series that does NOT have a direct game tie-in, though I would recommend seeing it after the games, as it does provide some references.
Roots can be taken as unrelated to the previous ones, though still has references to sign and the previous games. As before, it is a direct lead-in to the GU games (Rebirth, Reminisce, and Redemption, in that order). Unlike sign, which resolves much of its individual story, roots leaves very little resolved at the end to provide additional incentive to get the games.
Most of the manga and novels simply provide additional background information or a retelling of events from an alternate perspective. They're necessary for a complete understanding of The World and the events and characters within, but you can live without them.
