OK, this is a console game, but you're probaly stuck playing it on an emulator so it might qualify. Have you ever played Shin Megami Tensai 1 and 2 for the snes/SFC? It's the original series that persona is a spinoff of. Amazing games, even more so when you consider when they were made.

Usually open-ended size...for example, Final Fantasy X is very linear despite the random encounters, where-as an RPG like the PC's adaptation of Neverwinter Nights is quite open-ended.

Basically there's no real big difference, just a matter of preference that I have seen as of late.

hrm i guess if your looking for pc rpgs there is
planescape? heard good things
baldur's gate series
diablo? not really an rpg tho
neverwinter nights, pretty long and fun but i got exhausted when i started the expansions
morrowind?
kotor was pretty fun
lot of pc rpgs, but for me, i prefer console rpgs such as valkyrie profile, ff series, mario rpgs, golden sun, xenogears, etc compared to pc ones as mentioned above.

also, i think one of the large differences is that console rpgs have characters that are already created. while pc rpgs, you make your own up. so this can make a diff in how u relate to the chars.

Seeing that you liked Valkyrie Profile, i would suggest Xenogears.
The combat system is a bit smiliar and the storyline is GREAT.

Valkyrie profile as a pc version?

Anyway like Entropy and Draikan suggest go play Kotor, its a badass rpg in StarWars universe. It has both a console rpg feel and a pc game feel.

I haven't played the 2 games you mentioned (they're pretty darn rare- I know, I've tried to find them before), but if you're looking for RPG's with predefined characters (the kind I like) then you can't go wrong with Star Wars:Knights of the Old Republic and the Summoner games. Actually, KOTOR features a battle system that feels like it was ripped right out of the earlier released Summoner. Both have very interesting stories and characters supported by a good soundtrack. Anachronox is also pretty good, although I got stuck at this difficult real-time part where you have to shoot down these aliens
