I know it's been a year since this was asked, but I'm gonna answer anyways in case someone has a similar question:
It takes place roughly around the same time as HR as there are characters from all games up to lost song appearing but none from HR + there are mentions of stuff that will happen in Fatal Bullet.

Oh, but I've heard that AW vs SAO is considered non-canon to the games story by some people as the events aren't referenced in later games. But I haven't played FB and Alicization yet, so I can't confirm.

I would recommend playing LS -> HR -> AW vs SAO -> FB, but there wouldn't be any issues by switching HR with AW vs SAO in the order.

VS Accel World is non-canon since it is never mentioned and the DLC Characters is more like their Canonverse then Gameverse, the best exemple being Eugeo as the VS Accel World Eugeo knows Kirito from before and might have feelings for Alice like his Canonverse does unlike the Gameverse version that only remember his past and not how he got his armor(he more or less showed up in his Integrity Knight identity Eugeo Synthesis Thirty-two before he turned back into Eugeo pre-Synthesis Ritual) and has feelings for Kirito (He got a bed scene)

 

But the story is set before HR(On the SAO side anyway) and one can play it before HR but not replace HR with it. It's best to look at VS Accel World as a OVA as OVAs is at most times non-canon but some sort of fan service and also this game let's you see how Yui looks like as a adult but it and HR rises the question of how a AI can grow up(by that I mean physical)

 

Also while not asked, the Hollow Realization DLC and maybe even the Fatal Bullet DLC might be non-canon since Tia(from Hollow Realization) is a no show and is not even mentioned by her twin sister Premiere or Kirito and his har...I mean friends. But Alice more or less mentions her time with Kirito in Hollow Realization(Don't know about Eugeo as I dislike BL/Yaoi) so I'm not sure if the DLC is canon or non-canon.

 

So the order is Hollow Fragment > Lost Song > VS Accel World > Hollow Realization > Fatal Bullet > Alicization Lycoris (Not 100% sure if it's gameverse or a damn adaptation of the anime)

The no "Gaiden" order is Hollow Fragment > Lost Song > Hollow Realization > Fatal Bullet > Alicization Lycoris
