I haven't played a Pokemon game since Fire Red...

Which game should I get, to get back into the series.

Pokemon Black/White, Platinum or Soul Silver.

Which has the best story, most interesting world, best features etc. Also can you get the original 3 pokemon from Red/Blue in any of them?

Pokemon B/W and B/W 2 are the better games. If you lie nostalgia go with HG/SS (Though they are still easy)

HG/SS if you want to keep your whole remake thing going on, then jump to B/W. I found 4th Gen to be terrible and not even worth it.

Yeah honestly the 4th Gen games in retrospect were meh. They were still fun but meh. 5th gen the swiftly kicked it right in the ass.

The last one I played was Leaf Green. Then I got a 3ds and bought HeartGold...which was an awesome re-entry to the franchise. I later got White 2 which was a lot of fun.

I say HG/SS. I was in the same boat as you and hadn't played since gen 2, (I tried to play gen 4 but I felt it was stale and didn't impress me at all). Then I bought SS and it made me interested in the franchise all over again. I bought Black a few months ago but couldn't bring myself to finish it, (my lazy ass' fault, not the game's).

B2/W2 have the most Pokemon to choose from, so that might be a good one to go with.

My favorites of the series are HG/SS, but you can't go wrong with Black and White or it's sequels either.

I'd say Platinum. I don't understand why people seem to hate gen 4 so much, specially when gen 5 is complete crap...
