They're quite different games and you should probably get the one in the subgenre you prefer.

Persona Q is in the Wizardry/EO/First dungeon crawler genre, but with more of a story.  Not quite as much as Unchained Blades, where the characters just did not shut up, ever, but it's pretty story heavy.  It honestly feels very fanservicey, which may or may not be a bad thing depending on your opinion on the subject.

SMT IV is, er, SMT mainline?  It has a very different feel to it than Persona.  It has less overall focus on characters and more focus on the bigger picture . Also, named playable non-MCs are only uncontrollable guests and your party is entirely composed of demons and your MC. If you've played SMT this isn't anything new for you, I just feel the need to mention it because it does turn some people off.  It also has a really annoying Smirk system that I hope to all Gaming Gods they remove in the next game.

I've started playing this with the volume muted, since some idiot at Atlus thought it would be cute to not completely silence the voices when they're officially turned "Off". I don't need some moron telling me that their attack missed, that they leveled up, that someone's dead, and so on. I know some people can tolerate that crap, but I can't.
