I know it sounds odd but let me explain.

FFX-2. Anyone who's played it can certainly remember the little Al-Bhed called Shinra.
Later in the game while Shinra is studying the farplane he mentions that he thinks hes found the “worlds energy” or something similar.
He also mentions how he could possibly harvest it and use it as a power source. But it would take generations.
I know it may sound odd but could it be possible FFX is a prequel to FF7?
Anyways, if anyone finds anything else out then post. I love looking at possible connections in games.

Maybe.....I think it was more a case that Square couldn't come up with something original....Either that or it was an injoke for the FF7 fans to spot.

Good point safer. But its only a slight reference to ff7, not very likely to be related to an overall ff plot.
That would be pretty cool though...

i remember reading, but dont remember where, that the world that FFX and FFX-2 takes place in IS the same world that FF7 takes place in

so, basically, the guy named ShinRa is infact the scientist/person that discovers the life stream energy and how to harness its power: the person who likely founded the Shinra Inc company.

i dont remember how similar the worldmap is when comparing FF7 to FFX, but, there are similarities between them

its not intended to be a direct prequel, only a slight reference that barely connects the 2 games.

Well, I honestly can't say that I recognise anywhere in FF10 that looks even remotely like anywhere in FF7 (Even if it is 50 or so years previous)

Nah, I reckon it was just an injoke.

You have to remember that planets never stay the same, there's always some shift in the plates of earth that create volcanoes and all that. So it's posible that far enough into the future it could have changed radically. Or maybe even the weapons could have done something to whipe out spirans or there was a major disaster of the day after tommorrow kind to throw everything into chaos. The possibilities are endless.

Another good reason for the change in land mass could be that Spira was an Isolated continent somewhere away from the main bulk of the FF7 continents and the Spirans reached out for it when it was discovered....or they eventually gained the technological capability to rejoin with the rest of the world after Sin destroyed most of theirs, who knows.

(Can you tell I've been thinking about this one for a long time?)

Hmm...
Maybe over thousands of years the planet altered naturally, some places in 7 and 10 may be considered the same places.
Mt. Gagazet/North cave cliff (I think it's Gaeas Cliff)?
Macalania woods/Bone Village forest?
Maybe over time, place names were changed?

if were talking bout THOUSANDS of yrs that would mean shinra the kid would be dead and never been able to do his work and u never hear no reference of machina in FF7 or Yevon or Sin or anything. the only thing that links FF7 and X-2 is Shinra and his idea of using the planets energy

Safer:
Shinra would likely have had kids when he was older, the family bloodline keeps researching for generations and eventually comes to the FF7 world. As for references to Machina, Machines are present in FF7 (Guard Scorpian, Air Buster, Proud Clod etc.)
Sin, well... Sin's dead so why would anyone mention him?

Well, Red's species has a very long lifespan (He's seen 500 years after the events of FF7).
So a longer lifespan may mean that they won't have to reproduce as much to keep their numbers high, a possible reason to the lack of Red's species in FF7.

But if the species was around at the time of FFX, there are some areas that the party doesn't go to on the world map.

I am suddenly tempted to cross examine both maps

looking at those two maps it seems like over a long period of time the 10 one could easily become 7
theres even lots of similarities in em
especially with the north and western continents
