When did Resident Evil "Jump the Shark"?

All you gamers out there, answer me this. When did Resident Evil "jump the shark"? And by that I mean when did it start getting ridiculous and convoluted to the point that if you miss one game, you're pretty much screwed story wise.

Lordofthenerds88 made this simple yet hilarious video using an audio clip from an episode of 4playerpodcast wherein they try to discuss the exact origin of when Wesker became "Chris Angel".

I've listened to the episode before and it was hilarious. Now it has been immortalized on youtube. Thanks to Lordofthenerds88 for doing this and make sure to leave a comment on his video.
