If you can't decide, most fans break up the show into seasons under a showrunner. Season 1-5 were the Kripke years. Eric Kripke created the show. For Season 6-7 he was succeeded by Sera Gamble. She "stepped down" towards the end of Season 7 and was replaced by Jeremy Carver for Seasons 8-11. And Season 12 starts a new era with Andrew Dabb & Robert Singer.
For me, I find the later seasons during Carver's run quite enjoyable, at least for the MoTW episodes. Season 10 probably is my favorite off those seasons. But I think Season 4 was the strongest in terms of writing.

There's probably only been a handful of episodes I've liked since Season 5 ended. As for why I'm still watching...well, every season since I've thought "Surely this must be the last one.", but then the show's continued getting renewed. I was only really hanging in there out of sheer morbid curiosity. I was fully ready to give up at the end of Season 11 (after intending to do so previously several times), but they pulled me back in at the last second by
Seasons 1 and 2 are my all time favourites. Currently I like the Men of Letters storyline, and Dean and Sam having their own base is pretty cool, those guys pratically lived in motels for I don't know how many seasons
