I am looking at getting one of the d&d games. Which is the best? Do the need to be bought in order?

They are all stand-alone games.
Apart from a few scenarios on the WotC website and fan created content there's nothing that requires several of them, so the order doesn't matter if you decide you want to have all of them.

The most obvious difference is the setting:
- If you enjoy the Dark Elf stories around Drizzt => get Legend of Drizzt
- If you like the Ravenloft / Vampire setting,get Castle Ravenloft
- If you don't know / like any of them or want a more generic, oldschool D&D experience, get WoA.

Gameplay is very similar, Ravenloft as the first game still has some rules details not in the rulebook, but with FAQs available that should be a minor issue.

Although to be fair this poll is wrong because Castle Ravenloft is the best... whistle

If nothing else, 31% vs. 36% vs. 32% (with 219 votes) shows that they all have their merits and there's no "stinker" among them.

The later two, WoA and LoD, are a little more polished, while CR is the more difficult/challenging.

I agree with the previous poster, you should pick the one whose theme interests you the most.

I own all three due to the fact that I could not limit myself to just one after playing them all!

I also have one of each of the Dungeon Command sets and will shortly begin collecting 3 more of each of these for army building.

I hope this was helpful. If you have any further questions, ask away.

You can't go wrong with any of them as they are all great fun. I like the setting for Ashardalon better though so that's my favorite.
